AOC Student Grants
The Australasian Ornithological Conference (AOC) is the primary conference for BirdLife Australia and Birds New Zealand, and the largest biennial gathering of enthusiastic amateur and professional ornithologists and avian researchers from Australasia and beyond.
Birds New Zealand offers grants to assist postgraduate research students from New Zealand to present their findings at the AOC.
For the AOC 2022, five student grants will be offered covering the cost of registration for this virtual conference, subject to having an abstract accepted. A grant is awarded ONCE to any one person. Successful applicants are expected to write a short report on their conference
experience for publication in Birds New Zealand and/or submit an article to Notornis.
