Deadline: Coming Soon!

Please return completed grant to: (subject: Fall Grant Competition 2020-2021) 

The Student Veterinary Emergency & Critical Care Society (SVECCS) is offering a grant to active student chapters to provide funding for wet labs or lectures supplementing their college's curriculum.  Our vision for this grant is for our veterinary student chapters to design either a lecture and/or wet lab for a topic to which students would not otherwise be exposed.  A $500 grant will be offered, and winners will be chosen by the committee in the Spring semester.

Submissions can be for an upcoming event or for reimbursement of a recent event. 


Winners of this grant must submit a brief summary and a picture from the event for the newsletter. Entries can be sent to, no later than 2 weeks after your event, or within 2 weeks of winning the grant if being reimbursed for a recent event. The SVECCS National Board will also provide you with information for the company funding your event and asks that you write a professional thank you letter.

Please stay within the word limits that are imposed and provide all required information. Applications that fail to stay within these limits or to provide all required information will NOT be considered for funding at this time.

**Please make sure to use the form appropriate for the semester in which you are applying

Applications will be distributed to the members of the NSVECCS and our partners at VIN for review. A vote will take place at the NSVECCS meeting following the due date and all chapters who submitted a grant proposal will be contacted following this meeting.
