The mission of Morris Animal Foundation is to advance the science of animal health. Toward this aim, the foundation is dedicated to funding hypothesis-driven and humane animal health research projects of high scientific merit and potential impact.
To advance this mission, the foundation has issued a Request for Proposals from established investigators for research on topics relevant to the health and welfare of wildlife/exotics. The awards are for experienced researchers with a record of research publication. While there is no budget limit, the average award is $50,000 per year for two years.
To be eligible, applicants must have a DVM and/or PhD and a permanent full-time position in a university, accredited zoo, or conservation organization.
See the Morris Animal Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
