AVC Externship Grants
The AVC Board of Directors approved funding of a grant program to financially assist veterinary students working in an externship or preceptorship program or summer employment. These grants are in the amount of $500.00 per student. The funds can be used as the student needs to help offset the expenses encountered during an externship (i.e. fuel, meals, lodging, etc.)
The requirements are:
The Scholarship Committee is depending greatly on AVC members that are in contact with veterinary students and know both their interests and financial situation to nominate candidates.
Final selection of the recipients will be made by the AVC Scholarship Committee. We would like to have all applications in by January 31, so that final selections can be made by the AVC Spring Meeting and the funds distributed to the selected students in April.
The following must be performed in order to be considered:
1) Students should submit the application using the online application. You will receive an email when your application is submitted, and be contacted later about the status.
2) Students need to have the veterinary practice where their externship will take place complete a letter of nomination indicating they are willing to accept the student for the externship.
Both forms must be completed prior to January 31. Application process will open November 2013.
