 Call for applications for AVMA veterinary educator grants

​Posted March 1, 2017

The AVMA will begin accepting applications in early April for the 2017 AVMA Veterinary Educator Professional Development Grant.

Each grant provides up to $1,000 for on-site professional development for veterinarians and veterinary staff teaching at veterinary colleges represented in the Student AVMA House of Delegates.

Last year, a dozen grants totaling $10,000 were awarded to 11 veterinary colleges to support training programs addressing such areas as faculty mentorship, clinical communication, and leadership development.

In 2017, the AVMA Board of Directors increased the grant funding from $10,000 to $14,000.

The grant application period will begin April 3 and end June 30. Priority will be given to professional development in the following areas: communication training, leadership development, wellness or mental health training, financial or business skills training, and diversity training.

For additional information, contact Dr. Caroline Cantner, assistant director of the AVMA Membership and Field Services Division, by email at, or by calling 224-213-4366.
