Dear All,

The Victorian Regional Group of Birds Australia (VicGroup) invites
applications for The VicGroup Research Grants for 2001 from postgraduate
students at Victorian Universities and Colleges.

The VicGroup Research Grants for 2001 will be restricted to projects
involving the study of woodland birds of Victoria. These include species
that are resident in, or migrate to, the Box-Ironbark woodlands of
Victoria. Fieldwork must be carried out in Victoria. Applications in the

The closing date for the 2001 round of grant applications is 29/6/01.

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.

 Applications will not be considered unless all necessary permits have been
obtained from the appropriate government authorities and ethics committees
or have been applied for and are received and copies forwarded to the
VicGroup prior to 30/7/01.
