Graduate Student Fellowships for Alternatives to the Use of Animals in Science

The application cycle for graduate student fellowships is open. Create an account and begin your application. 

Our fellowships provide up to $12,500 annually in support for tuition or salary and supplies per year. The fellowships are renewable 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, replace, or refine the use of animals in research, testing, and/or education.

IFER funds may not be used for institutional indirect costs (overhead).
