UFAW Grants and Awards

Among UFAW’s top priorities is the promotion and support of high quality science that will lead to substantial advances in animal welfare, and the promotion of education in animal welfare – particularly at university and college level.

Lack of knowledge and understanding of animals’ environmental and psychological needs, and how these can be recognised and met, remains greater than is often assumed. A great deal of both fundamental and applied research remains to be done in these areas.

Awards are made to support a wide range of project types, and to recognise outstanding work in animal welfare science.
