Travel grants for vet students and recent graduates

If you are a BVA student member at a UK vet school, or a recent graduate, then you can apply for a BVA travel grant to carry out research projects overseas:

Harry Steele-Bodger memorial travel scholarship

The Harry Steele-Bodger Memorial Travel Scholarship was established in September 1953 to honour the memory of Henry W Steele-Bodger, President of the Association from 1939 to 1941, in recognition of his great services to the veterinary profession and agriculture, particularly during World War Two. See Harry Steele-Bodger's biography.

The scholarship is intended to assist a visit to a veterinary or agricultural school, research institute or some other course of study or project.

Applications for research projects that contribute to sustainable development or benefit communities in low and middle income countries are encouraged.

The 2022 award was presented to recent veterinary graduate from the University of Edinburgh Dr Rosa Loedel and University of Cambridge student Annabelle Lack.

Who can apply?

Penultimate and final year veterinary students, and graduates of UK and Ireland veterinary schools qualified for no more than three years.
