Animal Behavior & Education




The Animal Behavior Society's Education Committee was formed to promote quality instruction and training in the area of animal behavior.



ABS Outreach Grant

The Animal Behavior Society is excited to offer Outreach Grants to support outstanding community engagement efforts by ABS members. We have a responsibility as scientists to engage with the public, and most members of ABS are involved in creative outreach activities.

With this ABS Outreach Grant, we will recognize and support a few exceptional programs each year. Currently, awards are up to $1000 each. Winners will share their program on this website as well as through a poster at the ABS annual conference.

Proposals are due each year on December 1, and awardees will be announced in the Spring.
