In 1983 the Universities Federation for Animal Welfare (UFAW) established its first student scholarship to enable students to pursue relevant research relating to the welfare of animals. The UFAW Animal Welfare scholarship annually grants twenty students £1600 to use toward the research of improving the welfare of farm, companion, laboratory, zoo or free-living wild animals whose welfare has been compromised by humans. The funds will be distributed over an eight week period in the amount of £170 per week for allowances and £30 per week for project expenses.
This project can be undertaken as part of coursework or simply as a project that is of interest to the applicant. Upon completion of research, scholars are required to create a complete write-up of their findings along with present the information at an annual meeting that will be held at a university within the UK.
Students must be studying at a college or university within the British Isles or at a university with a UFAW link.
