The bursaries are available to veterinary undergraduates, veterinary postgraduates in research or taught courses and veterinary practitioners with a special interest in antimicrobial resistance.

Eligible entrants are asked to write to the Trust in no more than 400 words, to explain their interest in antimicrobial resistance and why they should be granted a bursary.

Entrants should also demonstrate how they would go about disseminating their learning from the event to the wider veterinary community.

The deadline for entries is Wednesday, 8 August 2012 and winners will be notified by September.

The bursary winners will offered a free delegate pass (including lunch) worth £90, and travel costs. 

Delegates can claim up to five hours contribution to continuing professional development (CPD) and could record this via the RCVS's new online Personal Development Record.

In return, bursary winners will be expected to submit one or more articles for Trust use.

Applicants can find further details on the Grants page.
