Research Fellowships

The Western College of Veterinary Medicine administers several graduate research fellowships through the following programs.

WCVM Interprovincial Graduate Fellowships: These fellowships are the result of financial support from the four western provinces. The basis for the support is the result of the overall interprovincial agreement for the College. An annual meeting is held with representatives of the provincial departments of advanced education to report on the Interprovincial Graduate Fellowship program.

Applicants for IPGF support are veterinarians who are registered full-time in a post-graduate program of study at the WCVM. Applicants must be residents of Canada and preferably residents of Western Canada. They must be Canadian citizens or hold Landed Immigrant status.

For more information, please contact the WCVM Research Office.

Equine Health Research Fund Fellowships: More than three dozen graduate students at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine have taken on the honoured title of EHRF Research Fellow since the first student was selected for the role in 1977. Each year, the Fund selects one or two graduate veterinarians for the fellowship program, then pays for their annual salaries and provides grants for their research projects.

For more information, please contact the WCVM Research Office.

Companion Animal Health Fund Fellowships: The Companion Animal Health Fund's research fellowship program has supported the specialized training of more than two dozen graduate students in the past three decades. Each year, the Fund selects one or two graduate veterinarians for the fellowship program, then pays for their annual salaries and provides grants for their research projects.
