Are you a student or a recently graduated veterinarian interested in finding out what aquatic veterinary medicine is all about or expanding your professional skills with aquatic animals?

The World Aquatic Veterinary Medical Association, in collaboration with the American Veterinary Medical Foundation and the American Veterinary Medical Association, will award up to 20 Aquatic Veterinary Educational Grants (up to $1,000 each) to veterinary students and recent veterinary graduates who are interested in exploring a career in aquatic veterinary medicine.

Funding from these awards can be used for a variety of aquatic veterinary educational opportunities, including attending workshops or meetings, externships or internships, or to support aquatic veterinary research projects. Awards are intended to assist veterinary students and veterinarians that have graduated in the previous two years and wish to become more involved with aquatic veterinary medicine.

All individuals that receive an award will provide a written report after completing their activity or project for possible publication in WAVMA’s quarterly publication, The Aquatic Veterinarian.

Applications for the 2014 program are now open, and will close on April 30, 2014.
