3 AAFV SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE FOR 2017
GUIDELINES AND ELIGIBILITY UPDATED
APPLICATION DEADLINE IS APRIL 1
 
AAFV Student members! 
We have great news - our guidelines and eligibilty have been updated!
 
The American Association of Fish Veterinarians (AAFV) recognizes the burgeoning cost of veterinary education coupled with the fact that most veterinary schools do not provide training in aquatic veterinary medicine. Thus, the AAFV Student Scholarship Program has been established to assist veterinary students in their quest to increase their experience and training in aquatic veterinary medicine, specifically fish. This includes, but is not limited to, participating in aquatic programs, short courses, externships, conferences and presentations and research projects. The AAFV Executive Board and Student Scholarship Committee has set the amount for each scholarship at $500. The number of scholarships offered each year will be dependent on available funds. Scholarships will be presented once a calendar year and need to be used within one year of being awarded.  More details are on our "Student Resources" page.
