Student Travel Award

Congratulations to the three 2016 award recipients:

Ellen Martin (Colorado State University)

Graham Frye (University of Alaska, Fairbanks)

Carley Bourdukofsky (Diamond High School, Anchorage)


Students are invited to apply for travel awards to attend the 2016 Alaska Bird Conference. All students are encouraged to apply, but travel funds are limited. As such, preference will be given to those individuals actually presenting (oral presentation or poster), and to those attending outside the Cordova area.

To apply, students are asked to write a paragraph including the title of their abstract and briefly stating their professional background, current degree status, and ambitions for attending the Alaska Bird Conference. Also please note if you have an outside funding source (grant travel from university, etc.) that will help fund your participation in the conference.

Please email submissions to the Alaska Bird Conference Scientific Committee at by friday September 9, using “Student Travel Award” in email title. Awards will be announced on Monday September 12.
