For the past twenty-three years, the Humane Society International (HSI) has provided financial assistance for graduate
students to attend the ISAE International Congress and present their research. We are pleased once again to be able
to offer this award. This year, we will be accepting applications from students worldwide who have not been prior
recipients of this travel grant and will award graduate students to present their research at the Congress. Selection
will be based on the potential impact of the students' research toward improving farm animal welfare and on
financial need.

The Graduate Student Travel Awards were developed with the following objectives:

  • To raise the profile of farm animal welfare as a discipline in animal and veterinary science colleges.
  • To encourage students to investigate issues in farm animal welfare.
  • To provide students the opportunity to attend the ISAE meeting to present their research and so they can meet with, and learn from, others who work in this discipline.

The following items are necessary for your application to be considered:

1. Your name, contact information, academic institution, level of study, and the name of your advisor, along with a
letter from you indicating:

  • your interest in animal welfare
  • your desire to attend this conference and what you hope to gain
  • relevance of your research to the advancement of farm animal welfare
  • statement of financial need

2. An abstract of your research, which you would present at the International Congress. Travel awards are
contingent on the acceptance of your abstract by the ISAE committee. Application for this travel award does not
suggest that ISAE has received or will accept your abstract.

3. Itemized list of travel expenses in US dollars.

4. Letter of recommendation from your major adviser.

Note: Please include your name on all pages and (or) attachments. Deadline for submission is 15 March 2023.

Applications are accepted via e-mail.
