Due to unforeseen circumstances, the SJDAWC has additional funding available for 2019 for a domestic masters student ($51,600 over 2 years). Applications from doctoral or international (masters or doctoral) students will be considered as well if stipend funding above this amount is available from other documented sources (ie. support from the proposed supervisor). (Please note that the University does not allow graduate students to begin their program unless all funding is secured.)
The Scholarship will support the training of researchers to pursue animal welfare research at the University of Prince Edward Island. Both applied or more fundamental approaches to research pertaining to animal welfare are welcome.
Application deadline: Wednesday, July 24, 2019 (decisions to be announced by mid-August). 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: All potential graduate students must identify a graduate faculty member at the Atlantic Veterinary College, UPEI, willing to supervise the student should the application be successful. This must be included with the application.
