George Smith, BVetMed4 student, has successfully applied to the Veterinary Student Scholars Program with the Morris Animal Foundation. He will be supervised by Professor Holger Volk, Professor Joanne Webster and Miss Kate English.
The Morris Animal Foundation Veterinary Student Scholars Program is a highly competitive program that provides veterinary students the opportunity to become involved in mentored research that enhances the health and welfare of companion animals (dogs, cats, horses, llamas/alpacas and companion exotics) and wildlife. 5 grants are made available for international veterinary student applicants at accredited institutions.
The Veterinary Student Scholars Program awards stipends of up to $5,000 to veterinary students who are selected by their institution to participate in clinical or basic animal health and/or welfare research. It is excellent news that George has been selected for this programme as only the strongest student projects based on scientific merit, relevance to animal health and adherence to Morris Animal Foundation’s guidelines and mission receive awards.
