  2. Hello. I’m 3rd year in High school in Prishtina (KOSOVO) and can i applicate for this scholarship Cause I’m From Kosovo .

    • Dear Mumin,

      Thank you for your enquiry. The aquatic veterinary scholarship program is open to students already in a veterinary education program and those veterinarians who have recently graduated with a veterinary degree. Although applicants can be from any country (including Kosovo) they will also need to be a member of SAVMA (Student American Veterinary Medical Association) or WAVMA (World Aquatic Veterinary Medical Association). For you to be a SAVMA member you would have to be enrolled in a veterinary program at veterinary school in the United States, or one Accredited by the AVMA Council on Education. However, iIf you are interested in becoming a WAVMA member, I suggest you go to their website (www.wavma.org).

      Thank you for your interest in aquatic veterinary medicine.
