Morris Animal Foundation is now accepting proposals for research studies on equine colic, with a specific focus on the intestinal tract. Grant applications are due by Monday, September 27, 2021, 4:59 p.m. EST., and will be funded in the 2022 fiscal year.
Proposals should advance the knowledge and understanding of one or more of these areas for colic: risk factors, prevention or early detection, feeding and nutrition, and pathophysiology. The Foundation is not accepting new proposals or resubmissions on other topics under this request for proposals.

Morris Animal Foundation is one of the largest nonprofit organizations worldwide that funds health studies benefiting horses, cats, dogs, llamas, alpacas and wildlife. The Foundation currently is funding 150 studies encompassing a broad spectrum of species and diseases, with approximately $3.3 million in new research funds disbursed annually.
Each year, the Foundation opens four separate calls for its major funding areas – equine, feline, canine and wildlife. This year’s equine topic is based on responses to recent surveys of both horse owners and veterinarians which indicated colic as the area most in need of further research.
To be considered for funding, applications are reviewed and rated based on scientific rigor and impact for veterinarians and horse owners by the Foundation’s scientific advisory board, comprised of leaders in the international equine research community.
Grant types awarded by the Foundation include Established Investigator, First Award, Fellowship and Pilot Study.
