Student Grant Scheme for Summer Research Projects – 2019

Are you a student of veterinary medicine, veterinary nursing or agricultural studies?

Do you have an idea for research that could have a practical and positive impact on raising animal welfare standards?

A new student grants round will open in September, for short research projects based on sound scientific principles and designed to have a practical and positive impact on raising animal welfare standards.  To register your interest, please contact us at enquiries@animalwelfarefoundation.org.uk and we will let you know as soon as the applications open.

Read about the student research carried out in 2017.

Watch the student researchers present their work at this year’s Discussion Forum.

High quality veterinary research plays an important role in improving animal welfare

AWF research projects are based on sound scientific principles and must have a practical and positive impact on raising animal welfare standards.

We are keen to support research that we can see will make a practical difference to animal welfare in a relatively short time period. We also pay particular attention to applicants’ communication plans. We want to be clear how the key messages from our research will be disseminated to the target audience – this is critical to achieving practical improvements in animal welfare.
