> Dear DVM students,
> We are very excited that there are a number of opportunities for you in

> ​8
>  if you have an interest in working with an AVC faculty member on a
> research project. We will be adding new opportunities as we finalize
> details and placing them on the website. At the moment, we have confirmed
> funding to support
> ​11
>  students
> ​​for our
> *Veterinary Student Research Award (or VetSRA)*. This award is for $4
> ​3
> 00 and will require another $1
> ​7
> 00 in matching funds from an AVC faculty member to make up the $
> ​60
> 00 required for a 12 week position. The details will appear soon on the
> website. So that you can see the concept, we are attaching the award
> description
> ​ and draft application.
>  It will be based on the student's application (not the faculty member) so
> it will be up to you to identify a potential supervisor and then work out
> the details with them of a suitable research project that will generate
> results over the summer. We will have a presentation about these awards for
> interested students early in the new semester, but we wanted you to be
> aware sooner so that you can start to think about ideas to develop. The
> deadline for proposals will be February 1, 201
> ​8

> There may be other sponsored research opportunities arising. These will be
> listed on the website as we confirm them.
