The AEMV is excited to announce the formation of this new grant made possible by a couple in the Boston area with a profound interest in the education, care, and research of pet rabbits. The purpose of this grant is to promote scientific research in rabbits.

Funding level is limited to a maximum of $5000 per submission.

Priority will be given to proposals making a meaningful contribution to the care of rabbits. Research proposals may not end with the termination of the animal. Other species may be considered if an appropriate rabbit survival protocol is not identified. Proposals must increase the knowledge of the veterinarians seeing a predominately rabbit clientele.

AEMV officers, AEMV board members, or AEMV committee chairs are not eligible for application. Members of AEMV will be given first consideration.

2017 Reasearch Grant proposals are due by July 1st.
Please send all submissions to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  

Winners will be notified by September 1st.
