The goal of this program is to fund equine research by established investigators. The Foundation for the Horse seeks discovery through innovative projects in areas of equine medicine that will advance the science needed to improve the health and welfare of the horse.
The Foundation is seeking proposals to complete research on areas important to horse health. Research applications on any topic will be considered for funding, and all investigators are encouraged to apply. Areas of particular interest include musculoskeletal, gastrointestinal, respiratory, and endocrine disease. Lameness, laminitis, colic, and development of diagnostic technology are areas considered to be important and in need of investigation.
Eligibility: Individuals with a background in equine research and a previous record of research publication are encouraged to submit a proposal.
Amount/Budget: The project budget should be for a maximum of $50,000 annually. The budget may include graduate student support, care of horses, consumable supplies, research service contracts and publication costs. Funding for equipment and faculty salary will not be allowed. NOTE: The Foundation will provide overhead of 10% of the grant to be included in the final $50,000 or less budget.
