IFER GRADUATE FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM FOR ALTERNATIVES TO THE USE OF ANIMALS IN SCIENCE

Funding Agency:
International Foundation for Ethical Research

The purpose of IFER’s Fellowship Program is to provide financial incentives to graduate students in science that encourage them at the earliest stages of their career to integrate innovation and discovery with ethics and respect for animals. Fellowships are awarded to those candidates whose program of study shows the greatest potential to replace the use of animals in science. 

Our fellowships provide up to $15,000 annually in support for tuition or salary and supplies per year. The fellowships are renewable 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 who proposals show the greatest potential to replace or reduce the use of animals in research, testing, and/or education.

Deadline for Pre-proposals: April 30, 2024
