The International Foundation for Ethical Research supports the development, validation, and implementation of innovative scientific methodologies designed to advance science and replace the use of animals in research, testing, and education.
To that end, the foundation is accepting applications to the IFER Graduate Fellowship Program from graduate students whose program of study shows the greatest potential to replace the use of animals in science.
Grants of up $15,000 will be awarded to support the development of alternatives to the use of animals in research, testing, and education. Applicants must be a student enrolled in a master’s or doctoral program in the sciences or human or veterinary medicine. Fellowships are renewable annually for up to three years, with continued funding dependent on student progress and the availability of funds.
Fellowships also will be considered for graduate students in other fields, including education, psychology, humanities, journalism, and the law, for projects with potential to increase public awareness or promote changes in the legal system or public policy regarding the use of animals in research, testing, and education.
See the IFER website for program guidelines, information about previous grant recipients, and application guidelines.
