HCAS has established a scholarship to support up to four young birders aged 25 or younger who would like to attend a Carolina Bird Club (CBC) meeting but lack the necessary funds. The purpose of the HCAS Birding Scholarship is to encourage participation in birding activities by a younger group than is typically found at these events. We believe that lack of funds is one reason younger birders do not attend CBC meetings, and we hope that this scholarship opportunity will help overcome that limitation.
HCAS will be offering the scholarship again in the fall of 2017 to cover CBC meetings in 2018. Please check back then for information about the 2018 HCAS Birding Scholarship.
