Eligibility The Delta Waterfowl Foundation is a privately supported research and education organization. Delta’s primary mission is to help conserve North American waterfowl and wetland resources by assisting in the graduate education of future resource professionals. In the process, Delta achieves its secondary goal of discovering basic and applied information about waterfowl and wetlands. The Delta Waterfowl and Wetlands Research Station (DWWRS), Delta’s main research station, is located at the Delta Marsh, on the south shore of Lake Manitoba in south central Manitoba. Delta will consider research proposals submitted by any student currently enrolled in a recognized graduate school program. Delta may occasionally consider proposals from individuals that have not yet been accepted into a graduate program provided that a letter accompanies these proposals from the student’s prospective supervisor indicating that acceptance into a formal graduate program is forthcoming. Delta does not fund amateur, post-doctoral, or faculty research, although research facilities are sometimes made available provided that research objectives are consistent and compatible with Delta’s overall mission. Delta will consider research proposals addressing any aspect of the ecology or management of North American waterfowl and wetlands resources.
