Become a FVSP Faculty Mentor

If you have never had the privilege of mentoring a veterinary student in sponsored research, it’s a fantastic experience. This is a great way to introduce extremely motivated students to your area of work. Due to the disparity between available funds and interested students, priority may be given to faculty able to support half ($2500) of the student stipend. Funding to conduct the research is not provided, thus projects proposed by faculty for students to complete must be currently funded.
