Guidelines for Zemjanis Outreach Fund



The Zemjanis Outreach Fund was established in 1994 to honor the memory of Dr. Ray Zemjanis, a longtime member of the Society for Theriogenology and Charter Diplomate of the American College of Theriogenologists. The fund is supported by donations from members and corporate sponsors and is intended for partial support of veterinarians traveling from developing countries to the United States for educational purposes.

c. Purpose of the trip

d. Dates of the trip

e. Funding total for the trip

f. Amount requested from the Zemjanis Outreach Fund

g. Sponsor(s)


II. Funds will be granted only to those individuals who will be visiting the United States and (or) Canada to complete hands-on training in theriogenology.
