Call for papers - AASV Student Seminar

Veterinary student scholarships

The American Association of Swine Veterinarians announces an opportunity for up to 15 veterinary students to make scientific presentations at the Student Seminar during the AASV annual meeting on Sunday, March 3, 2002 in Kansas City, Missouri. Interested students are invited to submit a one-page abstract of a research paper, clinical case study, or literature review for consideration by September 24, 2001 (firm deadline). The abstracts will be reviewed by a panel of private practitioners, academicians, and industry veterinarians. Students whose papers are selected for presentation at the meeting will be notified by October 15, 2001, and will be expected to provide the complete paper or an abstract for publication by November 16, 2001.

To help defray the costs of attending the AASV meeting, ALPHARMA Animal Health is generously providing a $500 honorarium to the student presenter of each paper selected for the seminar.

Veterinary students whose papers are selected for presentation at the meeting will be eligible to compete for one of eight veterinary student scholarships awarded through the AASV Foundation. The oral presentations will be judged to determine the scholarship winners. ALPHARMA will provide a $5000 scholarship to the student whose paper, oral presentation, and supporting information are judged best overall. The Eli Lilly and Company Foundation on behalf of Elanco Animal Health has increased their funding of the Elanco Veterinary Student Scholarship Program, enabling the AASV Foundation to provide seven additional awards of $2000 each. The awards will be presented at the AASV annual meeting awards banquet on Monday, March 4, 2002.

Students interested in competing for the ALPHARMA and Elanco Veterinary Student Scholarships must also submit the following supporting information along with their abstract (all supporting information must also be received by September 24, 2001):

  1. A brief biography and explanation of the student's interest in swine medicine,
  2. An explanation of the student's intended use of the funds, and
  3. A letter of recommendation from a veterinarian or veterinary school faculty member attesting to the character and interest of the applicant.

For complete details including abstract content, formatting, and submission information, students should contact their swine faculty advisor or the AASV office (Phone: 515-465-5255; Fax: 515-465-3832; E-mail: aasv@aasv.org).
