AALAS Grants for Laboratory Animal Science

The mission of the AALAS Grants for Laboratory Animal Science (GLAS) Program is to enhance scientific knowledge in laboratory animal health and welfare through research, and to further promote collaborative efforts by the AALAS membership within the broader scientific community. The Scientific Advisory Committee oversees this program.

The GLAS Program provides competitive short-term research grants in the laboratory animal science field. Current AALAS members are invited to apply for one-year grants of up to $50,000 (Standard Grant) or $7,500 (Small Grant). The principal investigator (PI) must be an AALAS member but Co-PIs need not be members. PIs are strongly encouraged to include collaboration with a research scientist in their proposals. Examples of research interest are as follows: environmental conditions; housing and enrichment; pain and distress; health and welfare; euthanasia; and advancements in animal care and use. Refer to previous awards for examples of the kind of research supported.

An updated application form and submission guidelines will be posted on December 1.

The grant submission deadline is 11:59 pm CST February 1 of each year, and notifications of GLAS grant awards are sent by May 15.
