Grants by Research Program Area

AKC Canine Health Foundation grants are categorized by Program Area and grant applications must be submitted in response to the Request for Proposals (RFP) for each area.

The Foundation strives to add depth to our research portfolio in the health areas our constituents consider to be of greatest importance. Research Program Areas allow dog lovers like you to support your concerns broadly. Importantly, an investment in the Research Program Area(s) of your choice will help make sure important science never goes unfunded.

Within each Research Program Area or Initiative Area, you will find links to view research grants recently approved by the AKC Canine Health Foundation.
