Also this year the UFAW (University Federation of Animal Welfare) has opened the calls for the Animal Welfare Student Scholarships (which aim at improving the welfare of farm, companion, laboratory, zoo or free-living wild animals whose welfare is compromised by human factors) and HSA Student / Trainee Scholarships (which aim at improving the welfare of food animals in markets, during transport or at slaughter).

Applications are welcome from individuals studying at universities or colleges in the British Isles or a non-UK institution at which there is a UFAW University Link. The University of Milan is part of this link, and Prof. Silvana Mattiello is the contact person.
