    Morris Animal Foundation
    Morris Animal Foundation Accepting Fellowship Training Research Proposals
    Morris Animal Foundation is now accepting proposals for Fellowship Training grants. Fellowship Training grants are designed to assist new investigators in launching a successful research career by providing salary support in a quality mentoring environment.

    This year we have additional funding for applicants from historically marginalized groups, in canine and wildlife health respectively, through our Donor-Inspired Study program. Those Fellowships are being funded by Sally R. McIntosh, who has supported Morris Animal Foundation for nearly 14 years, making her first gift to support greyhound health research in 2009. As she has grown closer to the Foundation over the years, Sally’s support has expanded into different areas including wildlife health. Her real passion for our work lies within the comprehensive scientific process that Morris Animal Foundation has established to fund only the best and most critical areas of research. By creating these Fellowship positions, Sally hopes to make a tiny dent in diversifying the animal health research community.

    The maximum project duration of a Fellowship Training grant is 24 months, and the total budget cannot exceed $125,000 USD.

    Proposals are due by Friday, December 2, 2022, 4:59 p.m. ET.

    Submit applications to All applicants are required to register by creating a login at this site. The individual submitting the application must be the Applicant/Principal Investigator.

    Morris Animal Foundation Now Accepting Proposals Investigating Mitochondrial Function and Chronic Disease in Cats and Dogs
    We are pleased to announce we are accepting proposals for the study of interactions between mitochondrial function and chronic diseases in dogs or cats. Such diseases might include cognitive dysfunction syndrome, renal disease, unresponsive atopic dermatitis, and dilated cardiomyopathy; although any diseases where mitochondrial dysfunction may play a role are of interest. This request is part of the Donor-Inspired Study program, which allows individuals or organizations to directly support a research topic for which there is a pressing need.

    Successful applicants will be expected to focus on connection of mitochondrial energy function at the cellular level with systemic wellness. Wellness should be interpreted broadly, inclusive of behavior, energy, appetite and emotional (affective) states. Ideal applications will involve collaborations between biomedical research groups who are already established in the field of mitochondrial biology and disease and veterinary researchers/clinicians. Approaches must be noninvasive, and laboratory animal models are not of interest. We will not accept off-topic proposals. Samples from Morris Animal Foundation’s Golden Retriever Lifetime Study may be made available to relevant projects. The maximum project duration is 36 months, and the budget cannot exceed $150,000 USD. Indirect costs are not permitted for this RFP.

    Proposals are due by Friday, October 21, 4:59 p.m. ET.

    The objective of this program is to facilitate the advancement of knowledge in canine and feline nutrition and health care, as well as supporting the professional development of residents-in- training at veterinary institutions. Towards this end, a fund has been established that will provide small grants (up to $15,000) to support well-designed research addressing nutritional issues relative to the dog and cat. Invasive or terminal research will not be considered for funding. Only veterinarians enrolled in a recognized residency or graduate degree program, or their mentor on behalf of the resident or graduate student, are eligible to apply for these funds. Grants will be awarded on a competitive basis. Selection will be based on review of research proposals received on, or prior to, the published deadlines. Research proposals will be accepted twice yearly, on or before May 1 and on or before November 1 of each year. To apply, veterinary residents must submit the materials itemized below.

    The application packet should include the following:

    1. Cover letter describing the intent of the research, the expected new findings likely to come from this research, and the significance of these findings should the research be successful.

    2. Research proposal. The proposal must be limited to 5 typed pages, but must include the following sections:

    • Research Hypothesis or objective
    • Review of the pertinent literature and prior research
    • Experimental Design, including anticipated statistical analysis and timing to completion of the project
    • Budget, detailing all key expenses. Indirect costs, if included, must be limited to 25% of direct cost less any salary and equipment.

    3. Evidence of approval from your institutional Animal Care and Use Committee.

    4. Evidence of adequacy of skills, equipment and other resources needed to complete the proposed research. If collaborations are necessary, include letters that confirm the collaborators' agreement to participate.
