Established Investigator Grants

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.

Established Investigator grants are designed to provide funding for research by individuals and teams with a previous record of research and publication.

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: There is no limit to the annual budget request, however the average award is approximately $50,000.00/year.

Duration: Maximum study duration is three years.
