British Society of Veterinary Pathology Widening Access Bursary

The British Society of Veterinary Pathology is committed to supporting individuals from backgrounds traditionally under-represented in veterinary science.

The British Society of Veterinary Pathology offers a bursary to attend their annual Summer and Autumn Meetings. This bursary is aimed at students who wish to pursue a career in veterinary science, or veterinarians with an interest in veterinary pathology.

The BSVP Widening Access Bursary is open to all applicants whose social class, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability or other individual circumstance (e.g. they spent their childhood in foster care or are a single parent) is underrepresented in veterinary science.

The Bursary covers conference attendance and travel costs (up to £200).

To apply, please email the BSVP Secretariat with your name, email address and occupation status (pre-vet student / undergrad vet student / postgrad student / working full or part-time / other). Applications close one month before the Meeting date.

RCPath/BSVP Medical Elective small grant scheme

The scheme is joint funded by RCPath and the BSVP and will offer small grants of value up to £1000, to help support undergraduate veterinary students who wish to undertake electives in pathology disciplines.

Electives may be clinical or research-based and may be undertaken in any part of the world.

A minimum of £500 must be used for student travel and subsistence with the remaining amount being spent flexibly for project-related costs such as consumables, or for student costs, as appropriate for the project.
