Fellowship Announcement

The 2019 Application Cycle for Graduate Student Fellowships for Alternatives to the Use of Animals in Science is now open. Applications are due no later than 11:59 PM CST on Tuesday, April 30, 2019.

Our fellowships provide up to $12,500 annually in stipendiary support and up to $2,500 for supplies per year. The fellowships are renewable annually for up to three years. Continued funding is dependent on student progress and availability of funds.

Fellowships are awarded to those candidates enrolled in Master’s and Ph.D. programs in the sciences whose proposals show the greatest potential to reduce, refine or replace the use of animals in research, testing, and/or education.

IFER funds may not be used for institutional indirect costs (overhead).

The 2019 Application Cycle is now open.

"I believe scientists who are working in biology, bioengineering, pharmacology and other relevant fields are aware of the limitations and ethical issues of using animal surrogates… I believe that the implementable pathway for achieving the 3Rs (Replacement, Reduction and Refinement) can largely be explored by the scientists, where I am super proud of my current project in terms of the possibility to contribute to this trend."
