Buckeye Nutrition and Waltham Foundation Offer $20,000 Equine Research Grant

A new research grant from Buckeye Nutrition and the Waltham Foundation awards $20,000 to help fund original research in equine nutrition, health behavior or welfare, the companies said.

Buckeye Nutrition, manufacturers of animal feed, and the Waltham Foundation, a supporter of research to benefit the health and welfare of companion animals, teamed up to offer the first Waltham-Buckeye Equine Research Grant. The grant totals up to $20,000, and the funds may be awarded to one project or split between two or more projects, according to Dr. John Sylvester, Ph.D, director of Research and Quality for Buckeye Nutrition.

“Buckeye Nutrition and the Waltham Foundation intend to publish the results in a peer-reviewed scientific journal,” Dr. Sylvester said, “which will benefit horses around the world.”

Applications from scientists, veterinarians and nutritionists will be considered based on scientific merit and compliance with ethical standards. Preference will be given to applications from the United States.

Grant applications must be submitted by February 1. Applications and grant details are available at www.BuckeyeNutrition.com or www.Waltham.com.

Grant funds are solely for research purposes and cannot be used for expenses such as student travel, college scholarships or charitable activities that don’t involve research. Recipients have the opportunity to work with Dr. Pat Harris of the Waltham Centre for Pet Nutrition or Dr. Sylvester of Buckeye Nutrition as an external project adviser.
