Veterinary Summer Scholars Program
About the Program
The Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine (AUCVM) invites veterinary students interested in participating in a mentored research program during the summer of 2018 to apply to our Veterinary Scholars Research Program. The Program is co-sponsored by the Merial Veterinary Scholars Program and the AUCVM.
The purpose of the program is to promote intensive involvement of veterinary students in laboratory research with faculty at the AUCVM. Summer scholars work on research projects that will enable them to test hypotheses, pursue specific objectives, conduct “bench” research, interpret data, and present their research findings. Mentors for the students are highly experienced research faculty with established research programs. They are enthusiastic advocates for the Summer Research Program enriching the experience with expert lectures and workshops designed to train scholars in the practice of science as well as directing the scholars’ research projects.
Applicants must be veterinary students who have completed their first or second year of a veterinary-professional program within the United States. Veterinary students who possess an MS or PhD degree or who are currently enrolled in a graduate program are not eligible.
