Deadline to Apply for Yale's LEAP's 2023 Student Grant Program


LEAP is inviting applications for our 2023 Student Grant Program.  Current Yale students at any level (professional, doctoral, master’s degree, undergraduate) are invited to apply. Applicants may work individually or in teams. The grant program supports student-led research and creative projects that advance understanding of, draw attention to, and/or develop strategies to address the urgent threats facing non-human animals. All current Yale students can submit proposals for term time and summer projects. For details on how to apply, see the LEAP website

Funding awards can range from $250 to $2,000. The deadline for submitting a proposal is March 29, 2023 at 1 pm ET. Decisions will be made by mid-April 2023. Projects should be completed by December 1, 2023, though this deadline is flexible for longer-term projects.

The funding can cover project-related expenses, such as purchasing access to datasets, paying for web hosting or materials, costs associated with interviews or research, etc. Funding may not be used to pay salaries for applicants or conference attendance (unless the conference attendance is part of a research project). Awardees will be required to submit a summary of their projects by December 1, 2023, and may also be asked to present their project at a LEAP event during the 2023-24 academic year. The project summaries and/or interviews with grant recipients may also be featured on the LEAP website.
