Winn Feline Foundation
Studies applicable to all cats and all aspects pertaining to feline health are encouraged. In this grant cycle, Winn Feline Foundation has an immediate interest in projects that address issues in nutrition and behavior. They have also dedicated funds for research in feline infectious peritonitis (Bria Fund), hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (Ricky Fund), and lung cancer in cats. In addition to the aforementioned funds, current breed specific special funds are available for Norwegian Forest Cat and Persian HCM studies, Birman heart disease studies, health issues in Abyssinians, and amyloidosis in Siamese-related breeds. Additional funding is available for research related to diagnosis, prevention, or treatment of inflammatory disease or abdominal cancer (liver, pancreas, intestinal tract) in cats.
Winn Feline Foundation is a non-profit, charitable organization that funds research into health issue affecting cats. Projects should have discrete and achievable goals. They must demonstrate their relevance or benefit to improving feline health, particularly regarding domestic cats.
Applicants may be faculty veterinarians, post-doctoral fellows, practicing veterinarians or veterinary students.
The maximum grant amount is $25,000, and awards will be determined in March 2018. Multi-year proposals totaling more than $25,000 will not be considered. However, continuation of studies funded in previous years will be considered.
If College-level review is required, your College will communicate its earlier internal deadlines.
