The RSPCA Australia Alan White Scholarship for Animal Welfare Research is available to full-time or part-time students in Australian tertiary institutions for the funding of original research aimed at improving the welfare of animals in Australia.
The scholarship was established to advance the cause of animal welfare in Australia. Applications should be for a discrete research project (which may or may not form part of a larger research program). Applicants must demonstrate in their application that their proposed research project is supportive of the policies of RSPCA Australia and will be used to further animal welfare in Australia.
The Scholarships are not restricted to any particular academic discipline. However, applicants demonstrating a major commitment to and/or involvement with animal welfare issues are strongly favoured.
The 2017 scholarship award will be for $8,800 and can be used towards any area of research that fits the general scholarship criteria.
Applicants must be enrolled in full-time or part-time education in an accredited course at an Australian University or College in the year their application is considered.
