Cultural Diversity and Awareness Grant

Cultural differences between veterinarians and clients, and in fact between veterinarians and other veterinarians, are one of many obstacles that the profession must face. To overcome these differences, each of us must approach all clients with an understanding of different values, beliefs, and personal preferences.

The goal of the Cultural and Diversity Awareness Grant is to provide the financial resources to encourage students to develop and support activities or experiences that will increase cultural and diversity awareness within their student body.

You can find the application here, including information about how to apply.
