Apply by Dec 15 for ABVP Swine Health Management Scholarship Program

The AASV Foundation Board of Directors has established the Swine Health Management Scholarship Program to annually support one AASV member interested in pursuing certification through the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners (ABVP). As part of its mission to support the development and scholarship of students and veterinarians, the goal of this program is to relieve some of the financial burden associated with achieving board certification.

The scholarship will provide reimbursement for Swine Health Management certification-related expenses incurred within the first 2 years following the scholarship award date. Eligible expenses include such things as travel, course fees, and textbooks. Reimbursement will not cover lost income. The maximum amount of reimbursement will be $10,000. An additional incentive payment of $10,000 will be paid upon successful and timely achievement of ABVP certification in Swine Health Management.

Scholarship applicants must have either a DVM or VMD with at least 5 years of continuous membership in the AASV prior to sitting for the Swine Health Management entrance examination administered during the AASV Annual Meeting. The applicant must provide a letter of application, including a curriculum vitae and a brief description of the applicant’s background, interest in swine health, reasons for pursuing board certification in Swine Health Management, and how the applicant anticipates serving the swine industry and AASV as a result of becoming board certified.

Submit applications by December 15 to the AASV Foundation by email OR mail to:

AASV Foundation
830 26th Street
Perry, IA 50220

A selection committee designated by the Foundation will review the applications and select one awardee annually, who will be notified during the first week of January.
