The RCVS Charitable trust is offering two Blue Sky grants for research into advancing veterinary science.

The winners of the grants will receive between £10,000 and £20,000 and the applicants must be on the RCVS Register of Veterinary Surgeons.

While one applicant can win an ‘open’ grant, the other will receive the Robert Daubney Fellowship which is only granted for research within the fields of virology and helminthology.

Cherry Bushell, the Trust’s Director said: “This funding is offered for veterinary scientific research projects which meet our interests in innovation and development.”
