Share |



The Theriogenology Foundation is pleased to offer a grant opportunity for veterinary students with an interest in canine reproduction.


- Eligible applicants are students registered in the professional degree curricula at any veterinary college/school.

- Veterinary student researchers must be student members of SFT.

- A graduate veterinarian, who is either a diplomate/fellow of the American College of Theriogenologists, the European College of Animal Reproduction, or the Australian College of Veterinary Scientists (Animal Reproduction), or a member of SFT, must be a contributing author on the grant application. Preferably, this veterinarian would be a faculty member at the school attended by the student.

- All monies awarded are to be used to support research pertaining to canine reproduction.

Award process: 

Monies will be awarded via a competitive granting process. Grant proposals will be evaluated and monies awarded once yearly. Grant submission requirements are as follows:

- The grant proposal must be no longer than five double-spaced, typewritten pages, including references (12 pt font, Times New Roman) and must contain the following:

  • Title page, including a short description of the proposed research
  • Background of research
  • Materials and methods, including description of determination of sample size
  • Description of animal housing and care indicating IACUC compliance.

Note: A copy of the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) approval is required only in the event funding is awarded, but it is strongly advised that it be included in the proposal in order to expedite release of grant funds. This approval page is exclusive of the 5-page proposal limit.

  • Detailed annualized budget, if applicable
  • Contact information for the primary (faculty) author, including telephone and fax numbers, surface mail address, and email address.

Awards will be up to $10,000 and may be disbursed over multiple years if the project takes more than one calendar year. All research must be concluded and a final report submitted within one year of the applicant graduating from veterinary school. A final report is due within six months of completion of the study. If no final report is received, the school attended by that student will be ineligible to receive grants for the next three granting cycles. The student will be expected to present the data at a Therio Annual Conference after completion of the study. Grant funds may be used for travel costs associated with this presentation.

Monies not used must be returned when the project is complete.

No indirect costs, including salaries, may be applied to this grant application.

Grant applications must be received by midnight, Eastern Time, on August 1st. Grants can be mailed as hard copies (six copies) or sent electronically as a Word document attachment. Submissions should be sent to the Theriogenology Foundation Granting Committee, 761 Tiger Oak Drive, Pike Road, AL 36064-3063
