Research and Project Awards

Urangutan in cageOpen for Application

Please see our Frequently Asked Questions page before submitting an application.

Each year a limited amount of money is available through the UFAW Research and Project Awards to make substantial awards (over £3,500) for research or other animal welfare projects (eg for educational initiatives or publications).

UFAW is concerned with the welfare of farm, companion, laboratory, and captive wild animals and with free-living wild animals whose welfare is compromised by humans.

Through its Research and Project Awards, UFAW aims to encourage high quality research that is likely to lead to substantial improvements in animal welfare. UFAW seeks to promote both fundamental research aimed at providing new insight into the subjective mental experiences of animals relevant to their welfare and at understanding their needs and preferences, and also to promote applied research aimed at developing practical solutions to animal welfare problems.

If you wish to seek support for a smaller project (of less than £3,500) please see the UFAW Small Project and Travel Awards.
