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 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.
