The Animal Welfare Foundation (AWF) is inviting applications for its student grant scheme, which supports innovative research projects that will have an impact on raising animal welfare standards. Proposals are welcome from undergraduate and postgraduate students of veterinary science, veterinary nursing, agricultural studies and animal welfare to undertake research projects next year.

AWF chair Chris Laurence said: ‘This is a unique and exciting opportunity for students with a passion for animal welfare to develop their research skills while advancing scientific knowledge in their field. From learning to design and execute a research study from start to finish, to travelling abroad and meeting experts in the field of animal welfare, undertaking a student research project can be really rewarding and beneficial to their studies and future careers.'

The deadline for submission of applications is midnight on 24 November 2019. For more information on the grants and full reports by previous...
