Merial Veterinary Scholars Program
Biomedical Research Opportunities for Veterinary Students
The mission of the Merial Veterinary Scholars Program is to expose veterinary students in their first or second year of veterinary school to biomedical research and career opportunities in research.
The Merial Veterinary Scholars Program culminates in a national symposium where veterinary students participating in the program gather from all over the U.S. and Canada to present their research findings and share experiences from their various programs. Presentations by and networking opportunities with invited veterinary scientists, researchers and faculty members are also part of the national symposium program.
Through the partnership and commitment to support biomedical research of each veterinary institution and the Merial Veterinary Scholars Program, it is hoped that these experiences will stimulate scholars and future veterinarians to consider a career in biomedical research.
