To promote student interest in careers in public veterinary practice and diagnostic veterinary medicine, a new Veterinary Student Travel Awards program is being launched to support veterinary student attendance at the annual joint United States Animal Health Association (USAHA) and the American Association of Veterinary Laboratory Diagnosticians (AAVLD) meeting.

Eight competitive $500 Travel Awards will be granted to students to offset travel expenses to the annual joint USAHA/AAVLD Meeting. In addition, registration fees for veterinary students are waived for the AAVLD and USAHA meetings. Veterinary students from all U.S. colleges of veterinary medicine are eligible to apply.

The deadline for applications for the September 29 - October 5, 2011 Annual USAHA/AAVLD Meeting in Buffalo, New York is August 29, 2011.
