The Veterinary Pathology SAC has compiled a list of funding opportunities designed to support travel and research for academics, practitioners and trainees in the specialty. 

The European Division of the Davis Thompson DVM Foundation symposium awards 

Available annually 

Five awards were available to attend the European Division Pathology Symposium in September 2019. Each award comprised a grant of €500 towards the cost of travel and accommodation. There was no registration fee.  These scholarship awards were open to veterinary pathologists in training in European veterinary schools or research institutes. Preference was given to applicants who were studying for higher degrees or who wished to gain further qualifications in pathology. Applicants were asked to send a Curriculum Vitae giving full details of their pathology experience and career plans together with a nomination by their Head of Department to the conference co-organiser Dr Simon Priestnall at spriestnall@rvc.ac.uk. The 2019 closing date for applications was 30 June 2019.
