The College of Veterinary Medicine Summer Veterinary Student Research Fellowship (SVSRF) Program provides stipends to first- and second-year professional veterinary students for a 12-week summer research experience. The purpose of the program is to introduce veterinary students to research in the hope that some will find this an attractive career option. The student fellows conduct full-time research during a 12-week period in the summer, with the advice and direction of a Faculty Mentor. An orientation to veterinary and biomedical research and the SVSRF program is provided at the beginning of the summer. Weekly lunch seminars and field trips to other research sites broaden and enrich the student''s exposure to veterinary research. The Program concludes with a Research Conference, during which the students present reports on their research activities, and a closing banquet. Student fellows are also strongly encouraged to participate in the Merck-Merial-NIH Veterinary Scholars Symposium with students from over 20 other colleges of veterinary medicine. Sponsor: The program is supported by Texas A&M University
