The International Foundation for Ethical Research (IFER) supports the development, validation and implementation of innovative scientific methodologies that advance science and replace the use of animals in research, testing and education.


Recipients of the annual Graduate Fellowships for Alternatives to the Use of Animals in Science recognize the significance of humane science. Through their work, these talented early career researchers are developing more human-relevant models to advance science and lessen reliance on animal experimentation. We are committed to support the outstanding graduate students who are working to promote the advancement of these methodologies that will spare animal suffering.

Our fellowships provide up to $12,500 annually in support for tuition or salary and supplies per year. The fellowships are renewable for up to three years. Continued funding is dependent on student progress and availability of funds.
