• 1 or 2 year appointments with half or fulltime funding options.
• For investigators who will have obtained a doctoral level degree (e.g., PhD, DVM, VMD, ScD, JD, MD) by January 1, 2015.
• Up to 10 Fellowships available.

The Foundation is open to proposals in any field (e.g., law, veterinary medicine, ethics, social sciences, humanities) as long as the research question to be addressed is shown to have the potential to provide information that can, within a reasonable time frame and a foreseeable chain of events, lead to improved welfare for dogs. This could include well designed pilot studies to demonstrate feasibility. The Foundation is particularly interested in research that has policy implications and can lead to changes in current practice or law that affects how society views, treats, cares for, and lives with dogs.
