Nominations now open for BSAVA Awards 2019
19 June 2018
The prestigious BSAVA Awards recognise outstanding contributions in the small animal veterinary profession. The Awards Committee will meet in October to consider nominations for the next BSAVA Awards, which will be presented during the Awards Ceremony on Thursday 4th April 2019 at Congress.
The Awards Committee cannot make nominations but relies on the BSAVA membership putting forward names for consideration. So why not take a few minutes to talk to your friends and colleagues and submit your online award nominations now? You can nominate more than one person and for more than one award but, with the exception of the Frank Beattie Travel Scholarship, you cannot nominate yourself.
We are also awarding a £2,000 travel scholarship to one deserving BSAVA member. The scholarship is for a trip abroad to study a particular aspect of veterinary practice. This award is self-nomination only.
To find out more about the Frank Beattie Travel Scholarship and to submit nominations for the other nine awards, please log in and visit the awards page within MyBSAVA
The closing date for nominations is Friday 21st September 2018.
