2015 John Pitts Aquatic Veterinary Educational Support Program for Veterinary Students & Recent Graduates


The WAVMA Board is pleased to announce that a limited amount of financial support is available to assist veterinary students and newly graduated veterinarians participate in aquatic veterinary educational activities in the next 12 months that will increase their knowledge and involvement in aquatic veterinary medicine.


Funding from these awards can be used for a variety of aquatic veterinary educational opportunities, including attending aquatic veterinary workshops or meetings, externships or internships, or to support modest aquatic veterinary research projects for which other funding is unavailable.  They may be used towards offsetting personal costs for:

·       Travel, accommodation, and/or registration at aquatic veterinary conferences, symposia and other continuing education and professional development (CEPD) meetings, including on-line aquatic CEPD;

·       Travel, accommodation, and other activities directly associated with veterinary student externships that expose individuals to clinical aquatic veterinary medicine; or,

·       Equipment and supplies needed for aquatic veterinary research projects not funded by other financial sources.


Applications for the 2015 Program close on May 15, 2015.  Awards will be made on a competitive basis based on information submitted by each applicant, with 2015 awards to be announced in mid to late June.


For more information and to download the application form, go to  A 2015 flyer is attached for posting on bulletin boards.  Please feel free to distribute this information to interested veterinary students and new graduates.
