 AAEP accepting research fellow applications

The AAEP is accepting applications for the 2010 American Association of Equine Practitioners Foundation Past Presidents' Research Fellow.

Established in 2006, the AAEP Foundation research fellowship highlights the importance of equine research while recognizing researchers for their personal contributions. Every year, the $5,000 scholarship is given to an AAEP member starting a career in equine research. The scholarship is made possible through the monetary contributions of AAEP past presidents. The application deadline is July 30.

Ideal candidates for the research fellowship are graduates of AVMA-accredited schools and colleges of veterinary medicine who have experience conducting equine research and are nearing completion of a residency or doctoral program.

Applicants who are seeking funding for their research project or have secured funding from other organizations are eligible to apply, as the scholarship focuses on supporting the researcher, not the project.
