Theriogenology Foundation - Student Chapter Grant

The Theriogenology Foundation will receive and consider requests for funding of student chapter grants. The funding is intended to provide educational advancement of students interested in Theriogenology. Furthermore, primary consideration will be given to funding requests which provide an educational experience in theriogenology that is beyond the scope of the basic curriculum. The Foundation may consider all or partial funding of a request based on the annual budget and the merit of the educational experience to students. Funding to cover a speaker's travel expense is also available and the Foundation office will assist in identification and scheduling of speakers if requested.

The request for funding student grants:

  • may come from the SFT appointed faculty advisor and/or members of the student chapter of the SFT. A faculty member should sign the request or send a letter of support.
  • must be for the sole benefit of students in a Professional Veterinary training program.
  • must be specific to the study of Theriogenology.
  • must include a cover letter, a course description and a budget.

While a student chapter may request funding for any speaker with expertise in a Theriogenology-related area, funding preference will be prioritized such that requests for speakers who are ACT Diplomates, (including honorary members) will be afforded top priority followed by non-diplomates who are Society for Theriogenology members, and then speakers who are non-ACT/SFT veterinarians. Lowest funding priority will be given to non-veterinarian speaker proposals. The cover letter should include a summary of the educational merit of the request. In addition, information regarding the student SFT chapter status should be included. It is also helpful to give an estimated attendance for the course. The course description should be a complete summary of topics and techniques to be covered. The budget should include materials, animal cost, travel, honoraria, course fees, and any other cost or funding associated with the course. The Foundation desires to fund educational experiences through this grant program and does not entertain requests for funding food and beverage items. Speaker meals will be supported.

Deadline for Application:
Applications are due October 1 and should be submitted at least 90 days prior to the anticipated event date. Applications should be saved as MS Word files and sent in electronic form to Members of the Student Chapter grant committee will review all proposals. Successful groups will be responsible for notifying the visiting Diplomate of the status of the application.The request will be accepted or denied based on the educational merit and the funding available.
