AVMA XIIth International Veterinary Congress Prize

Nomination Form—Deadline: February 15, 2017​

In 1934, funds raised for the entertainment of delegates to the XIIth International Veterinary Congress held in New York that year resulted in an unexpended balance. The U.S. Committee on Finance of that Congress met in 1936 to support an award to be known as the AVMA XIIth International Veterinary Congress Prize that recognizes outstanding service by a member of the Association who has contributed to international understanding of veterinary medicine. 

Nomination and Selection Procedures

AVMA members may nominate qualified veterinarians, who are members of the AVMA, for this award.

Each nomination must include:

  • Completed nomination form
  • Cover letter that includes a brief sketch of the nominee's background and a statement pertaining to the nominee's qualifications for the award
  • Nominee's curriculum vitae

Please note that letters seconding, endorsing or supporting nominations for this award will not be used in evaluating nominees.

The AVMA Committee on International Veterinary Affairs (CIVA) will review nominations and select the recipient at its spring meeting. The AVMA will notify both the nominator and the awardee immediately thereafter, and the winner will be honored at that year's AVMA Annual Convention, during the Global Health Networking Reception.

An awardee may not be selected in a given year if no nominee for that year meets the criteria for selection.

Nominations should be sent to AVMA Excellence in Veterinary Medicine Awards, AVMA XIIth International Veterinary Congress Prize, AVMA, 1931 N. Meacham Rd, Suite 100,  Schaumburg, IL 60173, or to avma-awards@avma.org for receipt no later than February 15, 2017.
