AOS bestows a range of awards and grants that recognize excellence in ornithology, honor outstanding service to the society, and provide direct funding for students, postdocs, and early career professionals.

Also see the NAOC website for information on AOS Caregiver Grants for 2020, which offset the extra costs incurred by caregivers to attend the meeting (for example, childcare or care of an ailing spouse or parent).
