About this funder:
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.
First Award grants are designed to assist new faculty in establishing a successful research program.
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 $54,000 per year ($50,000 per year, plus 8 percent for indirect costs if charged by your institution).
Duration: The maximum study duration is two years.
Mentor: Must have the support of a faculty mentor in the applicant’s field
