Deadline for applications: February 10
The goals of this program are to provide an opportunity for
veterinary students to explore careers in research through participation in a
hypothesis driven project, group training activities, trips to research centers
and attendance at research symposia. First and second year veterinary students
in good standing from AVMA-accredited schools of veterinary medicine who do not
hold graduate degrees are invited to apply. Positions are available for two
students who will receive a stipend and work 40 hours per week for 11 weeks.
Merial funded students will interact with approximately 25 veterinary student
researchers at The University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine in
Knoxville Tennessee and participate in training and social events. Students will present a poster of their
research at the 2017 Merial NIH National Veterinary Scholars Symposium at the
National Institutes of Health in Washington, DC August 3-6.
