Fellowships are now available for graduate students and post-docs to study at the Migratory Bird Center. Proposals are due to the Smithsonian-wide fellowship competition every January 15th.

If interested, prospective applicants are encouraged to contact potential Smithsonian host scientists well in advance of that deadline. Other opportunities for fellowships are occasionally available and will be advertised periodically.
