AVMA Student Externship Stipend Program Deadline - January 15th

Hey everyone! Here's a few updates to get the new year started!
AVMA Student Externship Stipend Program - DEADLINE QUICKLY APPROACHING - JANUARY 15, 2014!
The American Veterinary Medical Association offers assistance to students seeking to broaden their education through externship experiences in diverse areas of veterinary medicine. This program provides for up to fifteen $1,000 stipends in 2014 (funded by the American Veterinary Medical Foundation). These awards are intended to help alleviate expenses incurred by the student while performing their externships.
  • Ten stipends will be awarded to students for externships in non-clinical practice settings, with special emphasis on critically under-served areas of veterinary medicine. These may include (but are not limited to): public practice (e.g., CDC, FDA, USDA, NIH), industry (e.g., pharmaceutical, diagnostic laboratories, or animal food companies), or research.
  • Five stipends will be awarded to students for externships in food supply veterinary practice settings (e.g., dairy, beef, swine, or poultry).
These experiences add breadth to students' perspectives and make them better advocates for their patients and their profession. Applicants must submit their complete application package by January 15, 2014.

Applications can be found on the AVMA Web site at: you require further information please e-mail or call 1-800-248-2862 ext 6683.
