The UFAW Animal Welfare Student Scholarships 2023 are now accepting applications. Students can pursue their interests in animal welfare science thanks to the animal welfare student scholarships.
Students are encouraged to do independent research or educational projects with the goal of advancing our understanding of the best ways to evaluate or enhance the wellbeing of all animals, whether they are farm animals, zoo animals, pets, creatures utilized for scientific study, or those with which we interact in the wild.
Projects may be carried out anywhere in the world. If the location of the study is not at the university or
institute where the student is enrolled, confirmation is needed from the study host.
Student Scholarships consist of £250 per week subsistence allowance for the Scholar and
£100 per week project expenses. Although typically completed during the July-September
vacation, projects may be carried out at any time and usually last 4 to 8 weeks. Support is
provided for up to 8 weeks up to a maximum of £2800, although projects themselves may
be longer than this.
- Applications are welcome from undergraduate or MSc students who are interested in
carrying out a project in animal welfare and who are studying at universities or colleges at
which there is a Universities Federation of Animal Welfare (UFAW) Link.
- PhD students are not eligible to apply.
The application consists of three parts:
- An online form with contact information and a summary of the project
- A detailed project description (up to 3 pages)
- A CV for the student applying (1-2 pages)
When submitting the application (i.e., the online form, plus two documents to be sent in an email to
firstname.lastname@example.org) copy in the main supervisor in the email, as they need a confirmation email from
them that they are willing to take the student on.
