Funding Opportunities for International Programs
Purdue Study Abroad Scholarship
PVM scholarships will be available for 2013/2014 for students travelling internationally for study abroad experiences. Scholarships will be awards of up to $1500 per student and award recipients will be chosen by a faculty committee. Awards will be made to first and second year DVM students and Veterinary Technology students for summer international experiences and to third year students for senior year international externships and off campus blocks. Recipients will be chosen based on how the proposed international experience will advance the educational, career, and cultural objectives of the student. Students applying for scholarships are strongly encouraged to enroll in VM 80900 (International Veterinary Medicine). If they do not enroll in VM 80900 they will be required to either attend the lecture on universal safety precautions or alternatively view the lecture on-line.
The deadline for application for PVM international travel scholarships is 5:00 p.m. Friday, December 20th, 2013. Recipients will be announced by the end of January 2014.
Indiana Health Foundation Scholarship
The mission of the Indiana Animal Health Foundation is to provide financial assistance to individuals and institutions for educational and scientific purposes, in order to advance science for the benefit of animal health in Indiana. Since its founding in 1997, the Indiana Animal Health Foundation has sought to support the students of the Purdue College of Veterinary Medicine by providing scholarships. The Foundation appreciates the great learning experiences provided to veterinary and veterinary technology students in their participation in both domestic and international service-learning opportunities. The Indiana Animal Health Foundation welcomes current students to apply for these scholarships to aid in offsetting the expenses of these experiences.
