Young Birder Scholarship
The annual Young Birder Scholarships nurture interest in bird study and conservation among young birders. The 2017 scholarships will cover the full cost ($1295) of the Coastal Maine Bird Studies for Teens program at National Audubon’s Hog Island camp during the week of June 18-23, 2017. The cost includes housing, boat travel, and all meals. Scholarship recipients will be responsible for the cost of transportation to and from the camp.
Applicants must be New England residents, ages 14-17, and must submit a written application and two letters of reference. Preference will be given to applicants with individual or family BBC memberships. To be considered a member, an applicant may join the club at the time of application.
The BBC is now accepting scholarship applications. The deadline for submitting applications is January 12, 2017.
Scholarships are supported through the generous donations of club members. To donate, you can designate an amount on the “BBC Young Birder Scholarship” line on the back page of the club bulletin when you renew your membership or, especially for life members, at any other time you might wish to donate.
