Grant Description
Grants of up to $50,000 to USA, Canada, and International veterinarians, post-doctoral fellows, and veterinary students for research projects that address the health needs of cats. All areas of study related to feline health are welcome. Funding is intended for studies that primarily benefit domestic cats.

Studies applicable to all cats and all aspects pertaining to feline health are encouraged, including shelter medicine and behavior. EveryCat has dedicated research funds for several Special Funds including feline infectious peritonitis, (Bria Fund) and heart disease (Ricky Fund). 

Current breed-specific dedicated funds are also available for:

  • Norwegian Forest Cat and Persian hypertrophic cardiomyopathy studies
  • Birman heart disease studies
  • Abyssinian-related health issues
  • Amyloidosis in Siamese and Oriental Shorthair-related breeds

Additional dedicated research funding for cats is available related to:

  • Inflammatory disease or cancer of the liver, pancreas, and intestinal tract (Speckles Abdominal Cancer Campaign and Kitty Kollar Customers Care for IBD/Lymphoma Fund)
  • Chronic kidney disease and related hypertension disorder


Additional Eligibility Criteria

Applicants may be veterinary researchers, faculty veterinarians, post-doctoral fellows, practicing veterinarians or veterinary students.

Applicants may be faculty veterinarians, post-doctoral fellows, practicing veterinarians or veterinary students. PhDs in other scientific and medical specialties are eligible to apply for EveryCat grants though they may wish to collaborate with researchers and clinical scientists in the veterinary medical field. Candidates for the two New Feline Investigator Grant awards must be in a DVM/PhD program pathway at a college or school of veterinary medicine which currently applies for grants from EveryCat along with having an interest and working in feline health research.

EveryCat receives grant proposals from universities around the world, including Canada, Great Britain, Italy, Croatia and Brazil, to name a few. EveryCat Health Foundation is truly the only foundation exclusively funding cat health studies worldwide.

EveryCat does not fund projects requiring euthanasia as an endpoint or the induction of disease or injury unless the nature of the disease or condition studied offers such significant improvement in feline health and such means are justified. EveryCat does not fund studies where the induction of disease is terminal.
