Application Process

Student participants are selected from applicants in the pre-clinical years of the DVM program based on academic performance and a one-page essay by the applicants describing why they want to participate in the program and what they hope to gain from it.

  • Students from any veterinary school may apply; applications from veterinary schools outside the U. S. are specifically encouraged.
  • Selected students are then matched with a faculty research mentor based on a combination of their expressed research interest and agreement of faculty (both based on prior discussions between students and prospective mentors).
  • At least 10 and as many as 20 students (pending available funding) may be selected each summer.
