Shown below are specific research funds that are available to support or partially support grants to clinicians/scientists that are based in the College of Veterinary Medicine on the OSU Main Campus. Faculty can compete for these funds through the intra-mural grant application mechanism. Unless specified differently, the college grant application format shall be used. Forms can be requested from the Research Office. Application deadlines are published for the year and can be found on the web or requested from the Office of Research.

Forms can be requested from the Research Office. Application deadlines are published for the year and can be found on the web or requested from the Office of Research. Grant applications are reviewed by the Council for Research, ranked, and recommended for funding to the Associate Dean for Research. The Council for Research provides a written critique of the proposal to the benefit of the applicant. Unsuccessful applicants are invited to revise and resubmit their proposal (even repeatedly). The ultimate purpose of all grant applications shall be to generate preliminary data in support of subsequent extra-mural grant applications.
Legislation allocating money for this research states that it can be used for research and study of diseases of dogs, particularly those transmissible to man. It also provides for research of other diseases of dogs that, by their nature, will provide information applicable to the prevention and treatment of both human and canine illnesses. A portion (25%) of the funds will be targeted for research in areas as they relate to shelter medicine, including but not limited to epidemiology, behavior, infectious disease, and population control. Deadlines: January 15 and June 15 of each year.
The goals of these funds are:

This fund is intended to foster mentored student-based research involving amino acids and their chemistry which includes, but is not restricted to molecular interactions between amino acids, peptides, proteins, protein-protein interactions or their encoding nucleic acids. The intent is to provide student stipends (salary, benefits, tuition and fees) for up to three years during the training interval leading to a doctoral degree.
Applications to the Barber Fund will be evaluated on not only the quality of the prospective student, but also the quality of the proposed research project and mentor. It is expected that the student will play a major role in the writing of this application.
The standard college format for research proposals is not used for this submission. Instead, there is a separate C. Glenn Barber Fund Intramural Application and template.
The estate of Marjorie C. Martin in cooperation with the American Maltese Association has endowed the Paladin Veterinary Research Fund within the OSU College of Veterinary Medicine. The endowment draws annual earnings of about $ 11,000, which become available each August. According to the endowment designation, the income is to be used for research in diseases, defects, injuries, and treatment of Maltese dogs and other toy breeds, with particular emphasis on problems of reproduction, hypoglycemia, risks of surgery, and use of anesthetics. However, as research and veterinary science advance, the need for research in the various topics may change. Paladin proposals can be submitted at the same time as Canine grant applications are due, but need to be clearly marked PALADIN Proposal. Deadlines: January 15 and June 15 of each year.
Purpose: These funds are provided by the USDA for the study of diseases of food animals (including horses). The primary purpose of these awards is to provide seed money for projects leading to submission of proposals to the USDA for special and competitive research grants. Therefore, priority will be given to projects which offer the most promise of success in that competition. Maximum funding target of $15,000 per proposal.
