The Maryland Ornithological Society (MOS) awards ecology or ornithology scholarships to Maryland teachers and naturalists for summer workshops at National Audubon Society’s camp on Hog Island in Maine. Each award covers the cost of tuition, room and board for an extensive five- or six-day course of study and instruction in ornithology, ecology, conservation, and natural history. Travel arrangements and costs are the recipient’s responsibility.

Up to ten scholarships may be awarded annually. These workshop selections may vary from year to year and are listed on the Scholarship Choices page.

Scholarship recipients must work with young people. Teachers, camp counselors, park rangers, naturalists, and others who intend to make nature education a part of their careers are eligible. Applicants need not be members of MOS, but must be endorsed by a chapter or a member of MOS. Please refer to Scholarship Fact Sheet for more information or contact the Scholarship Chair directly: Scholarship Chair.

We also publish a Flyer if you wish to post or email it to others.
