    MSD Animal Health (known as Merck Animal Health in the United States and Canada) is relaunching its Research Bursary Initiative to include awards for both vet students and practitioners.

    The existing MSD Animal Health Connect Bursary and Ruminant Research Bursary have been combined into the new MSD Animal Health Research Bursary which is designed to support the future of the veterinary profession through research. The student arm of the new Research Bursary will award 1,000 to the five best research project applications received from veterinary students across all UK veterinary schools, with an opportunity for an additional 1,000 top prize and 500 runner-up prize. The veterinary surgeon arm of the Research Bursary will offer three awards, consisting of two ruminant awards and one companion animal award, of up to 4,000 each. The vet practitioner proposals will be judged by University academics to ensure independent assessment.

    Michelle Townley, Veterinary Advisor at MSD Animal Health comments: Our existing Research Bursaries are well known amongst students and practitioners, having run for over 25 years for the student bursary and 6 years for the ruminant bursary. To increase our support for the veterinary profession through research we have decided to combine our Research Bursaries and add some new categories to help appeal to as wide an audience as possible. This way we can offer a broader level of support for both existing companion animal and ruminant practitioners and our veterinary surgeons of the future. We aim to engage as many people as possible so the MSD Animal Health Research Bursary will be supported by a new website page and social media package to encourage as much interest from students and practitioners as possible.

    Student bursary applications are now invited, with a deadline for entries of Friday 26th May 2017. Vet practitioners will be invited to apply in September 2017.

    For further details go to the MSD Animal Health Research Bursary website at www.msd-animal-health.co.uk/researchbursary.aspx.
