Small Grants Scheme

EAFP Small Grants Scheme

Rationale:

In the light of an overall reduction of grant funding opportunities in the field of aquatic animal health, the EAFP has decided to launch a new Small Grant Scheme to assist its members in obtaining training in new methods which can further and improve research in fish pathology.

The EAFP Small Grants Scheme has been established to allocate small amounts of funding (up to a maximum of 1000 €) to support requests from members of the EAFP. Funds will be provided specifically for training visits to laboratories/institutions.

Criteria:eafp-small-grants-scheme-flyer

The maximum amount that any individual can be allocated in any one funding round will be: 1000 €
Applicants must be a registered member of the EAFP.
Preference will be given to applicants able to demonstrate additionally – having sourced some funding from elsewhere (non-EAFP funds).

Protocol:

Initially only 5 grants will be available.
Application forms can be downloaded from the EAFP website and will need to be completed by the agreed deadline, and submitted to the Vice President of the EAFP by the deadline date of the 31st October 2014.
Applications should be accompanied by a short CV and a letter of acceptance from the host institution/laboratory.
Applications will be assessed by the EAFP Council at their October Council Meeting.
Applicants will be notified by e-mail as soon as possible after the relevant EAFP Council assessments have been completed. No detailed feedback will be provided and the decision of the Council will be final.
Recipients of funds will be required to provide a brief report on the way the funds have been used, and, where appropriate the EAFP Council may also request that a short article for the EAFP website be provided. This information will need to be delivered within one month of the completion of the funded activity.
