RESIDENT RESEARCH GRANT
Submission Deadline: March 15, 2019
Sponsored by Purina Institute
The intent of this funding mechanism is to provide a stimulating research experience for ACVIM residents by working with experienced research-scientist mentors. We encourage enrolled ACVIM residents to consider this opportunity to become engaged in research to improve animal health.
To apply for these grants residents must identify an established research mentor. First year residents are encouraged to apply. Second year residents may apply with a strong statement that outlines an achievable timeline for completion of research during the remaining residency period. Third and fourth year residents are not eligible to apply unless in an approved non-traditional residency program with completion date >1 year from application for resident award. Budget requests up to $10,000 will be considered. While residents are identified as the grant recipient, the mentor will assume fiscal responsibility for the project.
We are looking for clearly written projects that can be completed in one year with the expected outcome of a publication with the resident as first author and a scientific presentation of research at the ACVIM Forum or discipline-specific scientific meeting. The Education and Research Committee and the ACVIM Board of Regents encourage applications from residents in private practice, and from private practice-University collaborations. Applications from private practice residents will be prioritized for funding.
