  • A non-technical summary of the project that a lay person can understand;
  • Examples of the number and species of animals the project has the potential to save.
  • Examples of the types of animal experiments conducted that relate to the work that this project could replace if successful (include references).
  • A statement on the impact of the project on biomedical research, humans, and animals in research.

You must specify a particular student at the time of application. The student will need to provide the following information to the applicant during the application process:

  • Personal contact details for the student;
  • Student degree details (including expected classification);
  • Personal statement from the student that includes their education history, why they want to undertake a summer research project with Animal Free Research UK, their future plans/career aspirations and how this particular project will help.
