If you are a dairy or beef cattle veterinarian who has been out of school less than 10 years and would like to further your education/training in the field/subject of your choice, apply for the Dr. Bruce Wren Continuing Education Award sponsored by AgriLabs and awarded at the 2013 American Association of Bovine Practitioners meeting in Milwaukee, Wis., Sept. 19-21.

Two $5,000 individual awards (one for beef, one for dairy) will be given in honor of Bruce Wren, DVM, PhD. Candidates will design their own award through an application process and judging criteria based on a professional-development plan and letters of reference. Past recipients have used the award for things such as ultrasound purchase/training, reproduction courses, advanced degrees or specialized training and to attend conferences for CE (see website for details).

Candidates must be out of veterinary school for a minimum of one year and a maximum of 10 years to be eligible.  Airfare and one-night hotel expenses for the AABP conference will also be provided by AgriLabs for recipients of this award.

A completed online application form (beef or dairy) and three letters of support must be submitted before July 15 to be considered. More information is available on the AABP website, and for more information about the Dr. Bruce Wren Award and other scholarships please visit AgriLabs’ scholarships site.
