FHANA Research Grant Program


FHANA’s Research Grant Program was developed to support FHANA’s strategic goal of becoming a leader in genetic research and equine wellness for the Friesian horse.

The goal of the FHANA Research Grant Program is to support equine veterinarians in the United States of America or Canada who are in programs that will advance their research skills with a goal of continuing an academic or research career path that will ultimately improve the health and welfare of Friesian horses.

Selected applicants for the FHANA Research Grant Program will be funded up to $10,000 in total in 2022.

The program’s areas of research interest for 2022 include:

·        Megaesophagus

·        Aortic Rupture

·        Chronic Progressive Lymphedema (CPL)

·        Colic

·        Connective Tissue Disorders

·        Insect Bite-Hypersensitivity

Though key areas of interest are noted, applications on any topic will be considered for funding and all researchers are encouraged to apply.

Grant applications are due no later than March 31st, 2022.  Approved grants will be announced on or about May 1st, 2022, unless notified otherwise.
