Graduate Student Funding Opportunity: Wildlife Health Center Fellowship
UC DAVIS KAREN C. DRAYER
WILDLIFE HEALTH CENTER FELLOWSHIP AWARD
ELIGIBILITY: Students currently enrolled in a graduate training program within UC Davis. A student may be enrolled in a program outside of the School of Veterinary Medicine (SVM), but the Faculty Sponsor for the proposal must have an appointment within the SVM and must be a collaborator on the project.
FACULTY SPONSOR: All university faculty or eligible university titles within the SVM. Faculty in other programs at UC Davis may act as co-sponsors with a SVM faculty member.
FOCUS OF GRANTS: Funding is available for a single year and will support both basic and applied research.
- Examples of basic research projects are: investigations on the effects of disease on free-ranging wild animal populations; establishment of normal health parameters for species and populations; examination of the mechanisms of disease for infectious and non-infectious agents in wild animals; or investigation of the effects of ecosystem changes on wildlife health.
- Examples of applied research are: investigations into disease prevention or management; experimental studies using model laboratory species for extrapolation to wildlife populations; development of technology that may improve disease monitoring of wildlife populations.
- The WHC fellowship does not encourage proposals focusing exclusively on captive wildlife health, except when such studies have substantial direct impacts on the health or survival of that species (or closely related species) in the wild.
BUDGET LIMITATIONS: Up to $5,000 may be requested.
