AVMF taking applications for disaster trainining and scholarships

The American Veterinary Medical Foundation invites applications for its disaster training session grants and scholarship programs. The Foundation sponsors state, regional, and national training sessions aimed at preparing veterinarians to care for animals before, during, and after a natural or man-made disaster.

An organization may apply for sponsorship of one training session per year. The number of sessions to be sponsored in 2012 will depend on application merit and availability of funds. The Foundation also awards $1,000 scholarships annually to around 20 Student AVMA members enrolled in their first, second or third year at an AVMA-accredited veterinary college or school in the United States. The AVMF application is also used to award the Winn Feline Scholarship of $2,500 and the $1,000 Mildred Sylvester Scholarship.

Students are encouraged to consider traditional as well as nontraditional careers as they move forward in their education to understand different options that the veterinary profession offers.
