New SPVS grant programme announced

The SPVS Educational Trust are launching a new biannual grant programme to support educational initiatives across the veterinary professions

SPVS Educational Trust is relaunching in 2022 with a new biannual grant programme to support educational initiatives across the professions.

The SPVS grants are open to students, post-graduates and not for profit organisations aiming to forward both clinical and non-clinical learning and educational projects. Applications are now open for the first grant awards, with winners to be announced at SPVS-VMG Congress in May. 

The SPVS Educational Trust had historically funded student and graduate events, including the annual SPVS Lancaster conference. Emerging from a period of dormancy in recent years, the Trust is taking a new direction with the SPVS grant programme.

Each biannual round of grants will include one large award of up to £10,000 and smaller awards of up to £2,000.

The new chair of the Trust, SPVS past-president Catriona Curtis, says: “We’re excited to announce this source of funding for individuals and not-for-profits to support and further veterinary education, practice, and our professions.

“The grants have a huge potential to positively impact the development of learning, tools and processes that ultimately help us to look after our patients, clients, and each other.’

Grant criteria includes further education scholarships, the advancement of research, educational schemes and the advancement of learning and knowledge.

SPVS grants will be considered for both clinical and non-clinical topics, and for those engaged in general veterinary practice or ancillary services.

Applications for the first SPVS grant programme are welcomed from now until 2 May 2022, and full details can be obtained on the website.
