World Horse Welfare is now accepting applications for its 2018 Bursary Scheme.
The aim of the scheme is to promote a greater understanding of equine welfare issues amongst the vets of tomorrow. The scheme is designed to support veterinary students and encourage you to undertake an equine option during your degree studies, or as part of any university-approved additional studies you embark on. It aims to develop greater understanding of both equine welfare and World Horse Welfare’s role.
All enquiries and applications should be sent to Dr Andrew Higgins at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for submission of applications is 31st January 2018. to develop greater understanding of both equine welfare and World Horse Welfare’s role.
The bursary programme may be undertaken in the UK or abroad. The charity will consider applications to work at one of its four UK Rescue and Rehoming Centres (Norfolk, Somerset, Lancashire or Aberdeenshire) or as part of one of its overseas projects (worldhorsewelfare.org/ International-Work). However, bursaries are not restricted to World Horse Welfare programmes if appropriate justification can be provided.
