Are you keen to learn more about animal welfare and develop your research skills? Do you have an idea for a short research project that could have a practical impact on animal welfare?

A veterinary medicine degree can lead you to a wide range of career paths, from practice or academia to government or research. If research is the path you would like to pursue, the Animal Welfare Foundation can help to develop your research skills. Every year, we offer funding for small-sized projects by UK students, of up to six weeks duration that will help us deepen our understanding of animal welfare and inspire evidence-based actions for all animals to enjoy a better life.

The Animal Welfare Foundation is now taking applications for projects taking place in 2024.  Apply by Thursday 29th February 2024.

Who can apply?

The scheme is open to undergraduates studying veterinary and animal welfare degrees, but students from other disciplines are also welcome to apply if their project is within scope.

Scope of research project

We will fund projects on animal welfare topics that are relevant to the veterinary profession and help develop your skills as a researcher.

What will the grant cover?

The grants are for intra or extra-curricular projects. We will cover the costs of the project but not overhead costs. Students can claim a stipend for extra-curricular projects.
