SAVMA Scholarships

Tufts SAVMA Travel Grant

The Tufts SAVMA Travel and Externship Grant is funded by the Tufts Student American Veterinary Medical Association.

This year we will be holding two travel grant application cycles. You may apply for funding for veterinary-related and professional travel completed in the past 12 months or anticipated for the next 12 months. We will hold application cycles in the fall and spring semester. Applications are assessed by the below rubric:

  1. Relevant to SAVMA’s core mission of professional development.
  2. Similar experiences are not available locally.
  3. Application well-written and complete
  4. Reasonable budget.
  5. Other sources of funding are not available or minimal.

The scholarship is awarded to deserving SAVMA members who demonstrate a strong desire to do veterinary school-related travel during their 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th year of school.

This grant is made possible by support from the AVMA, PLIT, and GHLIT who graciously fund the ALL (Achieving, Leading, Learning) for Students program, which allows us to spend more money on you in the areas of wellness, professional development, and leadership :). Please find the SAVMA travel grant application & guidelines attached. Make sure you have paid your dues online for the year before applying!

Fall applications are due electronically by April 10th, 2020 at 5:00PM to We will inform you if you have been selected by the end of April. Please read the instructions carefully as the application has been updated!
