The 2020 National Veterinary Scholars Symposium is being hosted by WesternU and UCSD (at the UCSD campus) on July 31 – August 2, 2020.
Applications for the 2020 WesternU Fellowship Opportunity are due to the CVM Office for Research (firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than January 10, 2020.
The WesternU Fellowship provides 1st and 2nd year students an opportunity to complete a research project with a mentor during the summer months. This program is ideal for individuals that want a part-time engagement, which is equivalent to at least 6 weeks of research. Attendance to training sessions is optional. Students are only eligible for 1 award over 2 years.
EXPECTATIONS AND SUPPORT:
Only one award is made per faculty, so student research scholars sharing the same mentor also share the stipend.
The Fellowship includes a stipend for the student and an expectation that the student research scholar will present their summer research project at the annual WesternU Student Technology and Research Symposium (STRS) or at another research conference.
Fellows are welcome to attend all group training sessions of the WesternU Veterinary Research Scholars Program, but attendance is optional.
Students applying for the WesternU Fellowship will need to submit the following document to the CVM Office of Research by January 10, 2020 to complete the application process: WesternU CVM Veterinary Research Scholars Application
