To reduce barriers to participation in Ornithology, AFO offers Sponsored Memberships. People from groups under-represented in ornithology, from Latin America, or unable to afford the membership dues are eligible. Sponsored Members receive full membership benefits and are encouraged to be active members of AFO and participate in our virtual and in-person events, conferences, and committees. Contact us if you would like to get additional information on how you can be involved with AFO as a Sponsored Member!
Applications are due on October 15 each year, and are awarded for the following calendar year. Please complete the sponsorship application form below before 15 October. AFO will review all applications and award Sponsored Memberships in late November each year.
If you are a member of AFO and would like to donate a Sponsored Membership to reduce barriers to becoming an AFO member, you can donate a membership fee here.
