Veterinary Student Scholars Program Accepting Submissions
DENVER/Oct. 14 – Morris Animal Foundation is pleased to call for submissions to the Veterinary Student Scholars program, a program that provides veterinary students the opportunity to become involved in mentored research that advances the health and/or welfare of animals.
The program is open to currently enrolled veterinary students in good standing from any American Veterinary Medical Association-accredited school of veterinary medicine based in the United States or abroad. Students may focus on large or small companion animals (including dogs, cats, horses, llamas, alpacas, exotics, etc.) or wildlife.
Morris Animal Foundation awards stipends of up to $5,000 to students accepted into the program. Students must devote a minimum of 50 percent of their time to the project for the equivalent of a 10- to 12-week period.
Students must first submit their proposal to their home institution. Each institution may select and submit only one student project proposal per year, and submissions must be made online by the academic institution for review by Morris Animal Foundation. These are highly competitive awards, and each institution is encouraged to select and submit the strongest student project based on scientific merit, relevance to animal health, and adherence to Morris Animal Foundation’s guidelines and mission.
The deadline for submissions is Wednesday, March 1, 2017, by 11:59 p.m. EST.
