HCAS Birding Scholarship
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.
