The 2022 Application Cycle for Graduate Student Fellowships for Alternatives to the Use of Animals in Science will open on January 1, 2022. Applications are due no later than 11:59 PM CST on Saturday, April 30, 2022.

Our fellowships provide up to $12,500 annually in stipendiary support and supplies per year. The fellowships are renewable annually for up to three years. Continued funding is dependent on student progress and availability of funds.

Fellowships are awarded to those candidates enrolled in Master’s and Ph.D. programs in the sciences whose proposals show the greatest potential to reduce, refine or replace the use of animals in research, testing, and/or education.

Applicants must be beginning or beyond their 2nd year of graduate school as of September 2022.

3RCC 3Rs Doctorate Programme

May 2022 – outline application deadline

The 3RCC is looking to encourage a new generation of researchers to adopt an 3Rs Principle ethos where new methods are transferred and put into active practice. One step on this way is to offer a PhD programme that focus both on developing this translational thinking in a new generation of researchers, as well as offering a solid anchoring in advancing the application of the 3Rs Principle within the Swiss research landscape.

The funding is intended for applications coming directly from the PhD candidate.

Please contact your local 3R coordinator for support.
