AAEP Foundation Past Presidents’ Research Fellow

The AAEP Foundation established the Past Presidents’ Research Fellow Scholarship in 2006 to emphasize the importance of equine research and to reward researchers for their contributions. This scholarship is made possible through the monetary contributions of AAEP past presidents and is for AAEP-member graduates and residents who are completing their residency or a graduate program while participating in equine research.

Award: One (1) scholarship of $5,000 will be awarded. In addition, if the recipient attends the awards presentation during the AAEP Annual Convention, they also will receive a $500 travel stipend.

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Must be a veterinarian 
  • Must be a current AAEP member
  • Clinical instructors/junior faculty members are not permitted to apply unless in graduate school
  • Must be a graduate student or resident at an AVMA-accredited school
  • The post-doctoral training program must have a substantial equine research component
  • Tenure-track or career-track faculty support is not the goal of this fellow

Apply: Applications closed on August 5, 2019. When funding is available for 2020 all eligible students will be notified via email and other AAEP communications, but feel free to check back here for updates in mid-2020.
