Student or qualified veterinary nurses wanting to apply for MSD Animal Health’s first Veterinary Nurse Research Bursary have until 10 May 2019 to get in their applications.

Last year, MSD Animal Health launched its first Veterinary Nurse Research Bursary, supported by the British Veterinary Nursing Association (BVNA), adding to its existing vet surgeon and vet student schemes.   One £1000 bursary will be made available to the student or qualified veterinary nurse in the UK with the best research project application.  There will be a further opportunity to win additional prizes of  £1,000 and £500 for the best proposals and presentations at the MSD Animal Health’s Research Bursary Day in June 2020.

Michelle Townley, Veterinary Advisor at MSD Animal Health comments:  “We are delighted that we’ve had such a positive response from veterinary nurses since we launched this new research bursary last year.  We want to encourage as many veterinary nurses as possible to apply.  We view our investment in research, and the pursuit of new knowledge, as the lifeblood of the veterinary industry.”
