Applications for Veterinary Student Scholars Program Doubles
Since its inception, the Veterinary Student Scholars Program at Morris Animal Foundation has grown from an initial class of 24 veterinary students in 2005 to 73 in 2010. More students are applying from more veterinary schools in more countries with each passing year. This couldn’t be more evident than in 2011.
In February Morris Animal Foundation received 141 applications for this year’s grant program, twice as many than the previous year. Students from almost every U.S. veterinary school applied, in addition to applications from students in 13 different countries. Also, having opened up the program to non-veterinary, animal health–related graduate students in 2010, the program received a number of applications from graduate students at non-veterinary schools.
The review process for all applications received by the Veterinary Student Scholars Program has begun, and a final class will be selected in late April. Morris Animal Foundation is committed to encouraging aspiring veterinary researchers, and based on the overwhelming response this year, the students are responding.
