Morris Animal Foundation Equine Behaviour Grants

The Morris Animal Foundation (MAF) is a US-based, non-profit organisation that invests in scientific research to advance the health and wellbeing of companion animals and/or wildlife.

MAF’s Equine Behavior Grants call seeks pilot proposals for the study of equine behaviour as it relates to preventing or improving important health or welfare issues.

Pilot study proposals should be aimed at generating preliminary data to prove the viability of a novel new approach or idea. Preliminary data is not required but should be included if available and useful for the application. The project may involve domesticated or wild horses.

All investigators are eligible to apply. Competitive applicants will have a previous record of research and publication in equine behavioural science. MAF permits a maximum of one application to this fund as Principal Investigator. Investigators may be resident in any country worldwide.

The budget cannot exceed $10,000. The maximum study duration is one year.

Applications must be submitted by the deadline of 30 September 2020.
