Dixie Pierson Memorial Fund
The Dixie Pierson Memorial Fund was established by her husband, Dr. Bill Rainey, and colleagues at the Western Bat Working Group. Donations are now being accepted for 2017 Scholarship awards. The goal is to award two $500 stipends biennially to defray travel costs and provide the opportunity for biologists to present their papers at the biennial meeting of the WBWG, where they can network with other biologists across western North America.
Bonnie Bat Educational Fund
To honor Bonnie’s memory and continue her legacy of bat education we have established the ‘Bonnie Bat Education Grant.’ This grant will help fund bat education themed projects. Project proposals need to explain how the money would be spent, and show a matching contribution. Submissions are reviewed and the selected proposal is awarded $250 at the WBWG Biennial Meetings.
Tax deductible contributions can be made to the Western Bat Working Group – Bonnie Bat Education Fund.
Bob Berry Scholarship Donation
The scholarship is awarded, through a competitive process, at the WBWG Biennial Meetings.
