The International Foundation for Ethical Research supports the development, validation, and implementation of innovative methodologies that advance science and replace the use of animals in research, testing, and education.
To advance this mission, the foundation is inviting applications for its Graduate Student Fellowships for Alternatives in the Use of Animals in Science. Through the program, fellowships of up to $12,500 per year will be awarded in support of proposals that show the greatest potential to reduce, refine, or replace the use of animals in research, testing, and/or education.
Projects of interest include contemporary areas of discovery such as the use of in vitro models, in silico simulations, projects in genomics and proteomics designed to collect human-relevant data, and epidemiological studies. Fellowships are renewable annually for up to three years
To be eligible, applicants must be enrolled in a master's or PhD program in the sciences.
See the International Foundation for Ethical Research website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
