The Research Award aims to support veterinary/biology/ecology projects investigating aspects of health and disease in Australasian wildlife. A research stipend of up to $2000 is awarded annually, to a member of WDA-A Section.
The Applicant will be awarded on the understanding that funds will be used to meet the running costs of a project and not for salaries or major equipment. Find out more under "How to Apply".
A panel of 4 WDA-A members will review the applications and choose the successful applicant. Closing date for the WDA-A Research Award applications generally is the end of March with the award made in April/early May.
Award holders will be expected to present their findings at an annual conference of the Australsian Section of the Wildlife Disease Association and to acknowledge the Section Research Fund in any presentations or publications.
