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.

Policy Education Grant

SAVMA’s Governmental Affairs Committee (GAC) is offering a grant to veterinary students and veterinary student organizations to provide funding for policy related lectures and/or events supplementing the college’s curriculum.

These grants ($500 with a chance of additional funds) will be awarded to the applications best outlining a program that demonstrates innovation, the potential to impact a large number of students, and accurate presentation of a topic(s) related to governmental affairs in veterinary medicine. The GAC hopes that with this grant, veterinary students will have the opportunity for exposure to current and practical topics that may not otherwise be included in the typical veterinary curriculum.
