BCI is pleased to announce that seven young researchers in our Student Scholarship Program are being supported this year by the Oracle Corporation of Redwood Shores, California. Recipients of the first Oracle Bat Research Scholarships are conducting studies that will be critical
to the protection of bats in Brazil, Mexico, Paraguay, Great Britain, Indonesia, and the United States.
Our supporters at Oracle know that solid field research is the first step to effective conservation. They also know that, by combining our efforts, we can generate vital data while supporting young scientists at early crossroads in their careers.
Unfortunately, even with the help of Oracle and other generous underwriters, the Student Scholarship Program can fund only a portion of the many qualified researchers who apply for assistance each year.
Please let us know if you or your company would like to join Oracle and its partners by making an investment in BCI's Student Scholarship Program. The "payoff" for such a gift goes far beyond tax deductions: your support will immediately help bats and the ecosystems that rely on them while ensuring a new generation of scientists and conservationists.
