CALAM/ACMAL Veterinary Student Travel Fellowship

Each year, CALAM-ACMAL makes an award available for up to three Canadian veterinary students to travel to the CALAS Symposium.  The Veterinary Student Travel Fellowship is intended to increase awareness of, and interest in, the practice of laboratory animal medicine by assisting veterinary students who have demonstrated an interest in the field to attend the annual CALAS Symposium and associated CALAM/ACMAL events (Luncheon, Scientific Sessions).  The Travel Fellowship reimburses the recipient for up to $1000 of expenses related to travel to the Symposium, including items such as transportation, hotel, and symposium registration.

To be eligible for this award, the applicant must be a full-time student in a DVM program who has completed at least one year of their program in Canada, or a Canadian student attending a foreign veterinary school. Application from CALAM/ACMAL Student Members will be given priority.
