Welcome to AS-ET

Advance education and promote excellence in the care and welfare of animals used in science.

The Animals in Science Education Trust (AS-ET) is a charity registered under UK Charity law with the objective of advancing education and promoting excellence in the care and welfare of animals used in science.


AS-ET has distributed, or is committed to distribute, nearly £100,000 in grants to support education and welfare activities. The bulk of the grants are in the form of bursaries to enable individuals to attend courses to improve their own knowledge and skills. These courses range from specialist short courses  to long formal courses such as those leading to the IAT further and higher education qualifications.


AS-ET has also made grants to support research projects, the development and provision of short courses and educational meetings. In addition we have established a special travel bursary, the Congress Bursary Competition and sponsor three educational prizes.


This website explains how AS-ET is run, how our bursaries can be applied for, how we raise our funds as well our latest news.


If you are interested in applying for a grant or want to become a sponsor or supporter we will be very pleased to hear from you. Please contact us through the link on this website
