Have you benefitted from a MSD Animal Health Research Bursary?
MSD Animal Health Wants to Hear from Past Winners

Milton Keynes, May 30, 2017 – MSD Animal Health wants to hear from past winners of what was previously called the Connect Bursary or the Intervet Bursary to find out how it has helped direct their veterinary careers.

Relaunched this year as the MSD Animal Health Research Bursary, the Connect scheme (and Intervet Bursary) previously gave veterinary students support for their research projects, with bursaries awarded each year. This was further supported by the MSD Animal Health Ruminant Research Bursary for practicing veterinary surgeons. The schemes have now been combined under the MSD Animal Health Research Bursary and we are keen to see how this support has specifically helped vets in their profession.

Michelle Townley, Veterinary Advisor at MSD Animal Health comments: “The aim of the Bursary is to support vets in their chosen career path and indeed MSD Animal Health has employed some of these winning students, including myself! We are keen to hear how any past winners have progressed as we build our Bursary Alumni Group. We would like to tell their stories in the hope of inspiring other students in their research.”
