    Morris Animal Foundation Accepting Fellowship Training Research Proposals

    Morris Animal Foundation is now accepting proposals for Fellowship Training grants. Fellowship Training grants are designed to assist new investigators in launching a successful research career by providing salary support in a quality mentoring environment.

    This year we have additional funding for applicants from historically marginalized groups, in canine and wildlife health respectively, through our Donor-Inspired Study program. Those Fellowships are being funded by Sally R. McIntosh, who has supported Morris Animal Foundation for nearly 14 years, making her first gift to support greyhound health research in 2009. As she has grown closer to the Foundation over the years, Sally's support has expanded into different areas including wildlife health. Her real passion for our work lies within the comprehensive scientific process that Morris Animal Foundation has established to fund only the best and most critical areas of research. By creating these Fellowship positions, Sally hopes to make a tiny dent in diversifying the animal health research community.

    The maximum project duration of a Fellowship Training grant is 24 months, and the total budget cannot exceed $125,000 USD.

    Proposals are due by Friday, December 2, 2022, 4:59 p.m. ET.

    Submit applications to morrisanimalfoundation.aibs-scores.org. All applicants are required to register by creating a login at this site. The individual submitting the application must be the Applicant/Principal Investigator.

    If you have any questions, please contact us.
