Student Animal Welfare Clubs

APPLICATION SUBMISSION DEADLINE: November 1st

OVERVIEW

The Animal Welfare Foundation of Canada (AWFC) has limited funds for small grants (up to a maximum of $2000 per club) available for animal welfare clubs at Canadian universities to support their activities.

AWFC asks clubs to direct this funding to educational activities that promote animal welfare aimed at club members, the student population in general and, where possible, the general public, to ensure the largest possible impact. Funds should not be used to support the veterinary care of individual animals on campus.
