​Posted July 16, 2014

Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica Inc. invites proposals for the 2014 Equine Research Awards.

Veterinarians, diagnosticians, and researchers in the United States and Canada are eligible to submit proposals for yearlong studies to help advance the diagnosis, treatment, and understanding of equine infectious diseases. BIVI will award five grants of $15,000 each.

The deadline for proposals is Sept. 15. An independent board of industry professionals, including practicing equine veterinarians and researchers, will select studies on the basis of criteria such as the potential impact on the equine industry, originality and scientific quality, and probability of completion. The awards will be announced in December during the American Association of Equine Practitioners Annual Convention in Salt Lake City.
