Grant applications may be submitted through Dec. 10, 2012, and the winners will be announced in March 2013, the Wyckoff, N.J.-based foundation reported today. Grants awarded in 2011 may be considered for a second round of funding.
Last year, Winn funded 10 grants totaling $174,018.
The organization has paid for research into feline infectious peritonitis and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, for example, but proposed studies can apply to all cats or individual breeds as well as nutrition and behavior.
Studies should have discrete and achievable goals within the $25,000 funding limit and can be submitted by faculty veterinarians, postdoctoral fellows, practicing veterinarians or veterinary students, Winn reported.
