The Morris Animal Foundation is now accepting proposals for research focused on equid health topics. Proposals should advance the health and overall welfare of domesticated horses, ponies, donkeys and mules.

Four grant types will be funded as part of this Request for Proposals:

  • Established Investigator—awards that provide funding for research by individuals and teams with a previous record of research and publication.
  • Pilot Study—grants that support innovative ideas to accelerate discovery and advance Morris Animal Foundation’s mission.
  • First Award—grants that assist new faculty in establishing a successful research program.
  • Fellowship Training—funds to assist new investigators in launching a successful research career by providing salary support in a quality mentoring environment.

Applications are reviewed and rated based on impact and scientific rigor by the Foundation’s scientific advisory boards, which are made up of topic experts in the veterinary community, and proposals are due by Wednesday, July 12, 2023.

Interested researchers can find more information, including proposal documents, on the Foundation’s Grants page.
