Established in 2009 by the American Veterinary Medical Foundation (AVMF) and the Winn Feline Foundation, this award honors a candidate's contribution to advancing feline health through their research. The recipient will present at a seminar to be selected by the Winn Feline Foundation.

The nominee does not have to be a veterinarian but should have a strong background in feline research that was beneficial to cats and has been published.
No self-nominations will be considered.
