Requesting Reimbursement from the Caring for Animals in Research Employee Scholarship (CARES) Fund

Related Information

Donate to the CARES fund
Gifts can be made directly to the CARES fund via the UW Foundation by check, online, and other ways.
1. Visit the UW Foundation website
2. Under "How to Give" at the top of the window, choose "Make a Gift" and follow the on-screen instructions.

Clearly identify your gift for the "CARES fund" or "fund 12446392." Without this information, your gift will go into a general fund and not directly to the CARES fund.

Purpose:

The Caring for Animals in Research Employee Scholarship (CARES) Fund offers scholarship opportunities for UW-Madison staff members who complete and pass an American Association for Laboratory Animal Science (AALAS) technical certification exam. Awarded individuals will receive a scholarship that covers the examination fee for the applicable AALAS certification exam. The eligible certifications include Assistant Laboratory Animal Technician (ALAT), Laboratory Animal Technician (LAT), and Laboratory Animal Technologist (LATG). The CARES Fund is funded by private donors who proudly support continuing education opportunities for employees in the lab animal science field. Animal care technicians, veterinary technicians, and many others can benefit from the CARES Fund.

Requesting Reimbursement:

If you are interested in applying for a CARES fund scholarship, you must have recently passed an AALAS certification exam while being employed at UW-Madison. Once you’ve passed the exam, you can apply for reimbursement from the CARES fund. Reimbursement is not guaranteed and will be offered on a first come, first serve basis. Documentation of exam payment and a copy of the official pass letter will be required for reimbursement.
