Reid Student Bursary for Donkey Welfare
Closing Date: 31/01/2024
Annual grants for small student projects to expand knowledge and understanding in the field of donkey welfare. Applicants must be enrolled on an undergraduate or Master’s university degree programme within the UK, Ireland, Spain or Italy.
The Donkey Sanctuary, a charity based in the United Kingdom, works to improve the welfare of donkeys across the world.
The charity offers grants annually through the Reid Student Bursary for Donkey Welfare for conducting small research projects as part of an undergraduate or Master’s university degree programme within the UK, Ireland, Spain or Italy. The aim is to expand knowledge and understanding for the improvement of donkey welfare.
Proposals are welcomed on any topic within the field of donkey health and welfare, and students from varying fields are encouraged to apply. Proposals are welcome across many different disciplines and areas of research including, but not limited to, veterinary science, behaviour, nutrition, social sciences and conservation. The guiding principle must be that the proposed project will contribute to furthering understanding in the field of improving donkey welfare. Proposals related to improving welfare for donkeys and their hybrids (mules/hinnies) will be considered.
If appropriate, students may wish to choose to undertake the practical element of their project at one of The Donkey Sanctuary’s sites within the listed countries. The practical element of a student’s research project may also be undertaken at a location not connected with The Donkey Sanctuary.
The Donkey Sanctuary may be able to offer a linked project related to its core aims and priority needs. However, novel research ideas and new projects based on the candidate’s own area of expertise are encouraged.
Research will only be approved if the expected outcome and benefits to The Donkey Sanctuary or donkey population in general outweigh the time and resources spent.
