Boehringer Ingelheim Veterinary Scholars Program
The objective of the Boehringer Ingelheim Veterinary Scholars Program (BIVSP) at LMU-CVM is to provide veterinary students a concentrated research-training program during the summer. Students will perform full-time research under supervision of their faculty mentors and participate in all activities of their host laboratories. Students will be exposed to all aspects of research, including formulation of a hypothesis, designing of experiments, preforming bench research, analysis of data, and presentation of results. Students will be working full-time for 10 weeks in the host labs and will receive a stipend for $5,000.
This year we have one opening for our students. Preference will be given to those who have no or little research experience beyond undergraduate research. Application deadline is Wednesday, Monday, March 5, 2018. Applicants will be notified of the outcome within 2-3 weeks of the application deadline. Students from colleges other than LMU CVM are also encouraged to apply. Please contact Dr. Verma for application form and information/assistance with identifying a faculty mentor.

First and second year veterinary students in good academic standing are eligible. The program's mission is to introduce veterinary students to research.
Students will select a mentor for the summer program prior to applying. See the list of research faculty for potential mentors. Feel free to directly contact research faculty to discuss this opportunity.
The applications will be evaluated on a competitive basis by the research committee, based on candidate’s academic performance, their clear understanding of the project, and recommendation from proposed faculty mentor.
