AABP Education Grants

Formal advanced training in cattle production medicine can help expand the skills and knowledge base of the cattle production medicine practitioner. In the spirit of supporting the development of future bovine practitioners, the AABP offers the Education Grants. The Education Grant program will provide grants of $1000 that will be available for incoming senior students and new graduates (those who have graduated in the previous six months). These grants will be awarded to students attending an accredited veterinary college advanced education program or another AABP approved continuing education endeavor.

Applicants must be a member or student member of the AABP. Applicants may apply for membership at the time they apply for this grant.

For consideration, applications must include:

A completed AABP Education Grant application form, including a letter of intent outlining the applicant’s career goals (students) or current job description (recent graduates), prior experience with food animal production medicine, and goals for the advanced education program. Education Grant applications must be made online via the AABP website. Applications can be edited once submitted up to the deadline date.

  1. A brief course outline or description from the institution conducting the course, or a detailed description of the continuing education opportunity if it is not being conducted at an accredited veterinary college.
  2. A letter of recommendation from a faculty member (who is also an AABP member) of the veterinary school the applicant graduated from or is currently enrolled in.
  3. Following completion of the advanced training, successful applicants will be required to submit an evaluation form detailing their experience.

Funds will be distributed directly to the university or program the student will participate in.

Applications for support of educational opportunities commencing between May 1, 2020 and April 30, 2021 must be received by April 15, 2020. Due to the number of applications we anticipate, this is a firm deadline. Notification will come in early May, 2020.
