The Florida Ornithological Society annually considers applications for grants-in-aid of ornithological research and/or environmental education with a strong ornithological emphasis. Each grant or award is in memory of one or more individuals important to Florida ornithology. Previous awards have honored Helen G. and Allan D. Cruickshank, and Mary J. and William B Robertson. Award amounts are subject to approval by the FOS Board of Directors. In the past, successful proposals have received award amounts ranging from $500 to $3200.
