Acorn Funding Opportunities

Small Grants for Quick Results

Acorns, one type of grant offered through the AKC Canine Health Foundation, are awarded for $15,000 or less (including 8% indirect costs). 

The Acorn program is designed to allow researchers to complete small, relatively short time frame projects, test research hypotheses, and/or generate preliminary data for possible future grant proposals as larger scale or longer term studies. Payments for Acorn grants are made upon the start of the grant and at six-month intervals consistent with progress report requirements until ncompletion. The final payment is dependent on the timely submission and approval of a final progress report and final financials.
