Grants of up to $5,000 to USA, Canada, and International veterinary students at an accredited institution for mentored research projects that promote the health and welfare of animals. Funding is available for both companion animals such as dogs, cats, horses, alpacas, llamas, and companion exotics, as well as wildlife.
The Morris Animal Foundation Veterinary Student Scholars program is a highly competitive program that provides veterinary students the opportunity to become involved in mentored research that advances the health and/or welfare of companion animals and wildlife.
As competition will be very strong for these awards, each institution is encouraged to select and submit the very strongest student project based on scientific merit, relevance to animal health, and adherence to Morris Animal Foundation’s guidelines and mission.
Veterinary student scholar awards from Morris Animal Foundation are stipends, and funds awarded are for the sole purpose of supporting the student during the research period and are not eligible to be used for project expenses.
GrantWatch ID#: 182520
The Veterinary Student Scholars Program awards stipends up to $5,000.
Students must devote a minimum of 50 percent of their time to the project for the equivalent of a 10- to 12-week period over the summer.
The Veterinary Student Scholars Program awards stipends to veterinary students who are selected by their institution to participate in clinical or basic animal health and/or welfare research. Students enrolled in a combined DVM/PhD degree program are not eligible for this program.
The program is open to currently enrolled veterinary students in good standing from any AVMA-accredited US or international college, university or school of veterinary medicine.
Each institution may select and submit only one student project proposal per year.
Funds are NOT eligible to be used for project expenses (including travel, publication costs, etc.) or indirect costs.
All submissions must be made online by the academic institution for review by Morris Animal Foundation. Submissions are due Wednesday, March 6, 2019, by 11:59 p.m. EST.
This is a student research grant application and therefore needs to be prepared and written by the student.
If live animals (including client-owned animals) are involved in the project, the institution must provide assurance that the research project complies with Morris Animal Foundation’s Health Study Policy for Animals Involved in Research (see below) and has Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) approval.
