Accepting the challenge to advance more humane science


The International Foundation for Ethical Research (IFER) is currently soliciting research pre-proposals for its 2017-18 Graduate Student Fellowships for Alternatives to the Use of Animals in Science.

The fellowships provide up to $12,500 annually in stipendiary support and up to $2,500 for supplies per year. The fellowships are renewable annually for up to three years. Continued funding is dependent on student progress and availability of funds.

Fellowships are awarded to those candidates enrolled in Master’s and Ph.D. programs in the sciences whose proposals show the greatest potential to reduce, refine or replace the use of animals in research, testing, and/or education.

Deadline: Applications must be submitted by Monday, April 30, 2018 at 11:59 PM CST.
