AVC Externship Grants

The AVC Board of Directors approved funding of a grant program to financially assist veterinary students working in an externship or preceptorship program or summer employment. These grants are in the amount of $500.00 per student. The funds can be used as the student needs to help offset the expenses encountered during an externship (i.e. fuel, meals, lodging, etc.). In addition, $500 per Externship Grant recipient will be provided to offset meeting attendance expenses if the recipient attends an AVC meeting the year of grant receipt or the year following grant receipt. The $500 meeting expense offset will be presented at the qualifying meeting.
