BOU Warham seabird studentships

Steve Dudley, May 30, 2018

The BOU is currently seeking applications from Commonwealth country degree-awarding institutes for several fully-funded studentships supporting postgraduate studies of Sphenisciform and Procellariiform seabirds, by citizens of Commonwealth countries.

We are particularly keen to see a greater number of submissions from non-UK institutes.

These studentships are funded by the John and Pat Warham Scholarship Fund, a legacy left to the BOU by the late John and Pat Warham. John and Pat Warham were British ex-pats who lived and worked in New Zealand, and John conducted his own seabird research at the University fo Canterbury.

The deadline for the next round of applications is 30 June. Further details are available at
