Grants of up to $50,000 to USA private practice clinics and academic institutions for research projects on eye-related diseases in animals. Funding may be used for animal fees, materials, research supplies, limited travel costs, and equipment. The purpose of the program is to advance the field of veterinary ophthalmology.

Applications in response to this request for proposals can be either clinical or basic science in nature. An overarching goal of the ACVO-VAF research initiative is to support quality research and co-join basic and clinical research to understand underlying disease pathogenesis and accelerate progress toward developing effective diagnostics and/or therapeutics. There are no restrictions on the targeted disease, tissue, or species. Each applicant will need to convince the reviewers that the proposed research project will advance the science of veterinary ophthalmology. 

As with all research projects, the approach must be scientifically sound with a clear rationale. The inclusion of power analyses to justify sample size and the inclusion of carefully selected control animals is extremely important and will be considered by reviewers. Further, the investigator(s) must demonstrate that they clearly understand the heath concern addressed by the proposal and have the expertise to perform the study.
