Dear All,

It is with pleasure that The Victorian Regional Group of Birds Australia
(VicGroup) invites applications for the VicGroup Research Grants from
postgraduate students at Victorian Universities and Colleges. Typically,
grants of $500-1,500 will be awarded for the support of field-based
research projects for one year. Each grant may be renewed for another year
provided that a second application is made indicating that satisfactory
progress has been made.

To be eligible for support students must be currently enrolled in a
postgraduate degree at a Victorian University or College. Applications must
be approved by the student's supervisor(s) and submitted by them through
the Institute's Office for Research and/or Graduate Studies Office. A
letter from that Office must accompany the application stating that the
Institution is willing to accept the grant and that it will be exempt from
all administrative and other charges. Grants are made on the strict
understanding that funds will be exempt from University or College
administration charges.

The closing date for the 2002 round of grant applications is 31/7/2002.

The VicGroup Research Grants for 2001 will be restricted to projects
