Overview:

Fellowship Training

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.

Fellowship Training grants are designed to assist new investigators in launching a successful research career by providing salary support in a quality mentoring environment.

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 $50,000 (including benefits and indirect costs) per year. Funds for this award can be used solely for the fellow’s salary.

Duration: Maximum study duration is two years.

Mentor: Must have the support of a faculty mentor in the applicant’s field.
