Applications open for equine science research and education awardsApplications open for equine science research and education awards

The Horserace Betting Levy Board invites applications for the equine veterinary research and education awards, due to start in 2016. There are three options to choose from: research project grants, small project grants and education awards.

Within the education awards is a Veterinary Research Training Scholarship, which will offer three-year funding to veterinary graduates wishing to pursue a PhD programme in any scientific or veterinary field relating to equines. The Senior Equine Clinical Scholarship will allow veterinary graduates with at least two years' experience to train for a higher qualification in an equine field.

For more information on the options available, visit www.hblb.org.uk
