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. Awards are $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 (emailed to [email protected]), and awardees will be announced in the Spring.
