AAAP Foundation Scholarships

The American Association of Avian Pathologists Foundation Scholarship Program accepts scholarship applications from students who are pursuing a career in poultry health and well-being and/or food safety in North America. Eligible students should attend a veterinary college accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association, or an accredited undergraduate university.  


The purpose of the preceptorship scholarship is to enable interested veterinary students to participate in poultry medicine training programs in order to expand their education, training, and veterinary skills through practical experience in their specialized field. The Foundation annually offers individual awards of up to $1,300.00 to veterinary students to help them defray housing, living and travel expenses incurred while attending poultry medicine training programs under the auspices of their veterinary medical schools.  Eligible students must be in the 3rd or 4th year of study at an AVMA accredited college of veterinary medicine located in the U.S.A., Canada, Mexico, or the Caribbean Islands. The AAAP has solicited the cooperation of its members in establishing a variety of training sites including universities, diagnostic laboratories, poultry production companies and poultry breeding companies.
