It’s that time of year again, and graduate students who care about animals need to get busy. Animal Welfare Trust is once again offering its amazing student grants to grad students who “have a demonstrated interest in animal welfare” to fund either an independent project supervised by a faculty member, or for an unpaid position within an organization. The grants are generally in the amount of approximately $5000.
Past grant recipients have included a doctoral student who worked with the FBI to conduct a study on the link between animal cruelty and personal violence, a law student who interned at Neighborhood Cats to draft a model TNR ordinance, and a vet student who developed a program on alternatives to the use of live animals in surgical training in vet school curriculums.
The deadline is March, 2012. If you are in graduate school, or you know someone who is who deeply cares about animals, this is too good an opportunity to pass up.
