New animal grant opportunities…just in time for the holidays

Two animal-focused organizations recently announced that they are accepting requests for funding from qualified applicants:

  • The Animal Welfare Trust is offering internship awards of approximately $5,000 each to graduate students whose work can potentially advance animal welfare reform, either through an independent research project or via an otherwise unpaid internship at an animal-focused organization. The application deadline is March 1, 2011. The Trust’s internship application guidelines provide details about the program, qualifications for applicants, a list of required materials to be submitted, an award timeline, and a description of past grants. Winners will be announced in April.

  • The John Ball Zoo Society is awarding grants of up to $2,500 each for wildlife conservation and education projects conducted by academic institutions, accredited zoos, and other nonprofit organizations. The application deadline is March 1, 2011. The Society’s application guidelines include eligibility requirements, contact information, answers to frequently asked questions, application forms, and a description of past grants. Awards will be announced in June.
