Maxine Adler Graduate Fellowship


The Maxine Adler Graduate Fellowship pays one year of graduate stipend at a level commensurate with the students’ current graduate group rate, plus full tuition and fees. Funding for a second year is contingent on a progress report and satisfactory progress in the student’s graduate research.

All graduate students are eligible to apply, but priority is given to students pursuing a PhD.


Students pursuing a graduate degree in any field of biomedical research with relevance to improving the health and care of companion animals are eligible for this opportunity. Students must have a mentor that is affiliated with the Center for Companion Animal Health. All graduate students, regardless of citizenship status, are eligible to apply.
