Pilot Study

The mission of Morris Animal Foundation (MAF) is to bridge science and resources to advance the health of animals. To achieve this aim, we fund hypothesis-driven, humane animal health research projects with high scientific merit and the potential for significant impact on animal health.

Pilot Study Grants are designed to provide funding for innovative ideas to accelerate discovery and advance MAF’s mission.

Proposals should be designed to convince the reviewers that the proposed project will advance the science of animal health; the investigator clearly understands the health problem and has the expertise to conduct the study; and the approach is scientifically sound. 

Application Limits: MAF permits a maximum of two applications as Principal Investigator per year.

Resubmissions: A proposal that is not approved for funding can be re-submitted a maximum of two times (three total submissions to MAF).

Budget: The budget cannot exceed $10,800 ($10,000 plus 8 percent for indirect costs if charged by your institution).

Duration: The maximum study duration is one year.

Preliminary Data: Preliminary data is not required.
