SAVMA Public Health and Community Outreach Committee Grant
The SAVMA Public Health and Community Outreach Committee awards eight $500 stipends each year to SAVMA members who reach out to populations that are underserved in terms of veterinary care.

Four of these stipends will be awarded to SCAVMA members who meet the requirements for an externship carried out between September 1st 2014 and January 31st 2015. Members of our committee will review each application submitted and make a decision based on the application's merit. Once four stipends have been approved, there will be no more available until the next period (i.e. February 1st 2015 to August 31st 2015) when four more stipends will become available.

The stipends are paid in a reimbursement fashion and are not guaranteed (i.e. the stipend is contingent on the successful applicant fulfilling the stated requirements). However, if an application is approved and the  requirements are subsequently fulfilled, the successful applicant will be awarded the stipend within 30 days of the committee receiving all necessary documentation after completion of the externship.

Stipends may be used to reimburse the student for expenses directly associated with service to an underserved population, including but not necessarily limited to travel, housing, and supplies associated with the service.
