VECCS Gives Research Grant
Deadlines Listed Below
The VECCS Gives Committee is pleased to announce its 2023 Inaugural Grant to fund research that investigates low-cost treatment options for the management of common emergent conditions in domestic animals. A total of up to $10,000 US is available, either as a single grant or divided between 2 or more awards.
Researchers are eligible for the grant if the Principal Investigator has a DVM, VMD, or is a certified nurse/technician and works in an emergency or urgent care veterinary hospital. Awardees who are not already VECCS members must join VECCS to receive funding. Membership fees will be covered for one year for applicants who are not currently members and express financial hardship. Research mentorship and statistical support are available upon request.
There will be a two-stage process for proposals. The committee invites submission of pre-proposals, following the guidelines below. Pre-proposals will be evaluated by the committee and invitations extended to investigators of the highest-ranked pre-proposals for full proposal submission. Pre-proposals should be submitted via VECCS awards platform at the button below.
- Deadline for pre-proposals: April 10, 2023
- Invitations for full proposals extended: May 15, 2023
- Full Proposals due: June 30, 2023
- Notification of funding: On or about July 31, 2023 (Award will be presented at IVECCS, September 2023)
The Awardee will be required to provide a 6-month report by March 18, 2024, and is expected to present at least preliminary data at IVECCS 2024. Interim reports will be required every (6) months until the final report is presented. VECCS Gives should be acknowledged in any publication.
Note: The VECCS Gives Research Grant Program is designed to give preference to clinically oriented projects that utilize clinical cases and subjects to investigate low-cost treatment options for clinically oriented ECC problems. The committee is particularly interested in projects that can be completed within one year. Terminal projects will not be considered for funding.
