AABP Foundation Education Grants

Formal advanced training in cattle production medicine can help expand the skills and knowledge base of the cattle production medicine practitioner. In the spirit of supporting the development of future bovine practitioners, the AABP Foundation offers the Education Grants. The Education Grant program will provide grants of $1000 that will be available for incoming/current senior students and new graduates (those who have graduated in the previous six months). These grants will be awarded to students attending an accredited veterinary college advanced education program or another AABP approved continuing education endeavor.

Applicants must be a member or student member of the AABP. It can take up to 3 business days to process new membership applications, therefore it is suggested to ensure your membership in AABP is current well in advance of applying for an Education Grant.
