In keeping with the objectives of the Constitution of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons, whereby ACVS encourages its members to pursue original investigations and to contribute to the veterinary literature, the ACVS Foundation has established research grant awards programs. The current grant programs include: Surgeon-In-Training, Diplomate Clinical Research, and the Zoetis Dual Training Research Grant Program which is designed for ACVS residents or Diplomates currently enrolled in a PhD program. Applications are received annually and reviewed by the ACVS Research Committee.
The ACVS Foundation research grant programs consider funding for surgically related clinical and basic research. All applications are submitted online to the ACVS Research Committee, which compiles an evaluative ranking of the applications for the ACVS Board of Regents (BOR). Recommendations for funding are then forwarded to the Foundation. View past research grant recipients.
Welcome to the Grants Writing Resource Page which was developed by the ACVS Foundation to encourage all Diplomates and residents to submit quality, professionally written proposals for the grants available each year. This entire page of information has been developed to support you in your writing needs, and highlights some of the many resources that are available to help you with your grant application process. The ACVS Research Committee looks forward to reviewing your proposals this year.
The application submission deadline is 11:59pm ET, November 1, 2017.
