Since its inception in 2001, the WALTHAM Foundation has funded projects in over 20 countries and provided in excess of US $1,000,000 towards research that helps to improve the health and welfare of companion animals worldwide. Up to 15 projects are funded per year. The vast number of peer-reviewed publications and internationally recognized presentations emanating from this work (over 500 to date) is a testament to the scientific calibre of the proposals we receive and the quality of the studies we have supported. WALTHAM is proud to partner with many of the world’s leading researchers.
In 2013, the WALTHAM Foundation is offering around 15 grants of up to US$20,000 to scientists, veterinarians and nutritionists globally to improve and enrich the lives of companion animals. Projects may be of a veterinary, nutritional, or behavioural nature.
All projects must comply with WALTHAM's ethical guiding principles: the research must not inflict suffering or result in the euthanasia of the animals involved. All clinical studies must have informed owner consent.
We invite you to apply for a WALTHAM Foundation grant in 2013. Please describe your proposed study and the need for funds as specifically as possible in the WALTHAM Foundation application (for non-equine projects) or the
WALTHAM-Buckeye Grant Application Form (for equine projects). Follow the links on this page to download the appropriate application form. All applications are handled with strict confidentiality.
All applications for the 2013 funding cycle were due by 1st February 2013, and we are no longer accepting applications for this year. Applications for the 2014 funding cycle will be due on 1st February 2014. Applications forms for 2014 are not currently available, but will be posted later this year.
CONTACT US: If you have questions about the WALTHAM Foundation or the application process, please send your inquiry to: email@example.com
All applications are evaluated by a team of scientists to ensure each complies with our ethical principles, the science is of a high standard, and the research will increase collective knowledge of and benefit the care or well-being of companion animals.
We encourage researchers to share the results of WALTHAM Foundation studies as broadly as possible through appropriate conferences and symposia, driving forward our vision to create a better world for pets.
We receive many high calibre applications each year. Please do not be discouraged if your application is not selected. Unfortunately we are not able to provide feedback on projects that are not selected for funding. We sincerely appreciate your interest in the WALTHAM Foundation.
