Overseas Travel Grants for Students
|For 21 years, the British Veterinary
Association has awarded travel grants to veterinary undergraduates based in UK who wish to
undertake projects overseas.
In 2002, TAWS started a similar scheme, and selected Rebecca Cannon and John Perrot to work on animal welfare projects relating to horses in Egypt. These projects involved the identification of compromising factors such as foot care and wounds caused by harnesses and saddles. These students, both from Bristol Veterinary School, hope to help to devise methods to combat such problems.
In 2003, Andrew Wallace of Liverpool was supported to study an anthelmintic programme in
|Morocco, in collaboration with
SPANA. His report, 'Evaluation of the efficacy of anthelmintic treatment in working
donkeys in Morocco (SPANA)', is available **here.
The grants for 2002 and 2003 have been made possible generous
donations by TAWS supporter, Mr M Stamp.
