|Two receive Morris Animal Foundation Grants|
Congratulations to Ashley Nichols (2010) and Christine Simecka (2011) on being among the 43 veterinary students accepted into the Morris Animal Foundation’s Veterinary Student Scholars Program. The grant program provides veterinary students an opportunity to become involved in veterinary research that enhances the health and welfare of companion animals and wildlife.
Each student will receive a stipend to participate in a short-term clinical or basic veterinary research project under the guidance of an experienced researcher. Nichols and Simecka will also be invited to Morris Animal Foundation’s annual meeting in Colorado in June 2009, where their projects will be reviewed by the Foundation’s scientific advisory boards. The students with the top three companion animal and top three wildlife poster presentations will receive cash awards of $5,000, $2,500 or $1,000
