Past Grant Recipients

AAV Avian Health Fund

Pre-proposals for research projects addressing clinical aspects of captive bird health (companion and zoological species) are now being accepted for consideration for funding by the Association of Avian Veterinarians (AAV). Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, diagnostic testing, disease treatment, drug pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics, and practice management. Preference will be given to grant submissions relating to avian species traditionally kept as companions or to projects in which the major findings are relevant to companion species, however strong proposals relating only to zoological species will also be considered. For the purposes of this grant, companion birds are defined as “species normally maintained in or near the household of the owner or person who cares for such animals” and can include companion poultry and species used for falconry. Grants are limited to $10,000.00 US for individual projects.

AAV Wild Bird Health Fund

Pre-proposals for research projects addressing wild bird health are now being accepted for consideration for funding by the Association of Avian Veterinarians (AAV). Projects of interest include but are not limited to epidemiology of disease in wild populations, ecotoxicology, diagnostic testing and treatment of wild birds, and conservation medicine. Grants are limited to $5,000.00 US for individual projects.
