Applications for the 2020 AAFV Student Scholarship Program
are now open!
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.
Please note for 2020
The scholarship committee recognizes that students may have issues in trying to meet the deadline for the AAFV scholarship program in light of COVID-19. It also realizes that the aquatic experiences and training that the students might be seeking may have been cancelled or postponed. As such, the scholarship committee has extended the deadline for applications this year’s scholarship program to July 31, 2020. Also, for any applicant who is awarded a 2020 scholarship for aquatic programs, short courses, externships, conferences or research projects that are cancelled or postponed due to COVID-19, the awards can be utilized for other activities or those activities postponed to a later date, provided the awardee requests permission from the AAFV Scholarship Committee. However, the awards should be used within a 12-month period that starts with application closing date. Any awards that are not used for an approved activity will need to be returned to the AAFV. The Scholarship Committee will make an effort to evaluate all applications in four to six weeks after the closing date.
This program is open to all AAFV Students members. If you are not a member - Join Now!
