Fellowship - peer education/outreach on Animal Research

The Americans for Medical Progress/Michael D. Hayre Fellowship in Public Outreach, established in 2008, promotes peer education about animal research among students and young adults aged 18-30.  Named in memory of Michael D. Hayre, DVM, ACLAM, the Fellowship provides support for peer outreach and education projects in the United States.
Inaugural Fellow, Tom Holder, one of the founders of Pro-Test in the U.K., toured the US in 2008 inspiring scientists and others to stand up for research.
The UCLA Pro-Test rally and the Pro-Test Petition:  www.raisingvoices.net  both developed thanks to Tom's work as Hayre Fellow in 2008.
Now we're seeking US students and young adults (ages 18-30) to follow in Tom's footsteps.
Deadline is May 15.
