Research Grant Program

SVSTS is proud to announce an annual grant program for grants up to $10,000!

The Society of Veterinary Soft Tissue Surgery (SVSTS) was formed in 2002 with the objective of advancing the art and science of soft tissue surgery through: 1. encouraging members to pursue original investigations, report unusual cases, and discuss the diagnosis, management and advances of soft tissue surgical conditions, and 2. encouraging its members to contribute to continuing education in soft tissue surgery and to report in high quality veterinary journals. The SVSTS is delighted to offer a grant to fund projects that advance the field of soft tissue surgery.

To that end, SVSTS has established a goal of providing grant funding for research projects that will have a direct impact on advancing the field of veterinary soft tissue surgery. To be eligible for this award, the Principal Investigator must be an active member of the SVSTS. Proposed projects must be directly related to soft tissue surgical diseases. Blinded proposals will be reviewed and scored by the SVSTS Executive Committee.

Pending evaluation of submitted proposals, one award of $10,000 USD will be awarded; however, if additional funding is available and more than one proposal is selected, two grants may be awarded and sum to ≤ $10,000 USD.
