The SJDAWC is calling for applications from potential graduate students for the 2017 Sir James Dunn Animal Welfare Graduate Scholarship. The Scholarship will support the training of researchers at the masters or doctoral level to pursue animal welfare research at the University of Prince Edward Island, Canada. Both applied or more fundamental approaches to research pertaining to animal welfare are welcome. Applications for 2017 will be accepted until 12pm (noon) (AST) Friday February 17, 2017, with decisions to be announced in April. Students may take up their award at any time of the year but must do so within 12 months of the date of the letter of offer.
Please note that students are not required to apply to the UPEI graduate studies program until after the scholarship has been awarded. However, all potential graduate students must identify a graduate faculty member willing to supervise the student should the application be successful. This must be included with the application.
Since 1994, generous support from the Sir James Dunn and Christofor Foundations has provided a stable foundation for the development of the Sir James Dunn Animal Welfare Centre (SJDAWC) at the Atlantic Veterinary College, UPEI. The Centre is very grateful for the continued funding commitment from The Christofor Foundation which makes this scholarship possible.
