Saskatchewan Breeding Bird Atlas Travel Support
Remote Travel Grants
Remote Travel Grants are available to help defray expenses incurred by atlas volunteers who undertake atlassing in remote areas (generally Regions 15 and 16). Individuals of all skill levels are invited to apply for a remote travel grant, but funding preference will be given to individuals or teams having skills to complete atlas squares coverage goals for point counts (15) and general atlassing hours (12-20 hrs). Because annual funding to cover remote travel grants is limited, applications for work targeting squares in northern regions (Regions 15 & 16) will be given priority. However, volunteers considering working in other regions are still encouraged to apply in the event that the fund is not expired supporting applicants for northern surveys. Applications for remote travel grants should be submitted between January 1 to June 15. Interested participants should (1) complete the application form, and (2) submit it to the Atlas Office (email@example.com).The projects will be evaluated on a first-come, first-served basis. As the budget available for travel grants is limited, you are encouraged to submit your request as soon as possible.
