Small grants and bursaries

We have had a disappointing response to the 2020 call for applications for small grants. Not only was the number of applications only about half of the usual amount, but several applicants requested support for projects that were either not targeted on priority species or were simply extensions of academic research, with no clear community or conservation impact.

However, we’re pleased to provide funding support for one application – a Swift project and although it’s not the first Swift project we’ve supported, the evidence suggests that these projects are very successful in meeting the criteria that WOS sets. There’ll be more details about the successful project later.

At the same time, we have received no applications recently from young people for bursaries – we would encourage these, so please look at the relevant page on the website. There’s no deadline date for these – applications are welcome at any time.

You can find full details of the Small Grants and Bursaries schemes on the WOS website.

Current login problems

A quick message to all members:  we are currently changing our membership system and that means new passwords for all members.   Letters giving you the new details are on their way but may take a bit longer than usual to arrive.   In the meantime, you may have problems logging in to the membership areas.

Due to these problems we have made all membership areas accessible without logging in for the time being.

If you are having ongoing problems please contact the membership secretary with your login details and problems.

Apologies for the timing of changing passwords and arrival of letters has not happened in quite the right sequence. Thank you for your continued support of Welsh Ornithological Society.
