Scholarships applications are invited for undergraduate or graduate students
to attend the Annual Meeting of the Vermont Botanical and Bird Club. The
meeting consists of morning bird walks, field trips on Friday and Saturday,
and evening speakers. We go to interesting natural areas to observe plants
and birds, and sometimes even butterflies! This year the meeting will be at
Southern Vermont College in Bennington, Vermont, from June 25 (Thursday
afternoon) to June 28 (Sunday morning).

We are looking for students who are interested in natural history. We
provide a full scholarship, which includes all food and lodging and one
year’s membership in the club. Scholarships apply only to full attendance at
the meeting (Thursday evening through Sunday morning).

To apply for a scholarship, we need to receive the following by May 22, 2009:

   1. recommendation from a professor – this can be in writing, by email, or
through a phone conversation;
   2. a letter with an expression of interest and a little information about
yourself (one page is fine; can be by email);
   3. contact information (name, address, email, and phone number). 

We will select the students and notify them of their acceptance by May 29,
2009. Once students have been selected, we will ask each one for a check for
$25 as a “good faith” deposit and to hold their room. This must be received
by us no later than June 5, 2009, in order for us to reserve the room. The
money will be returned to the student when they arrive at the conference.

Correspondence should be addressed to:

Vice-President, Vermont Botanical and Bird Club
