ESVD offers financial support to highly motivated veterinarians from diverse geographic areas who wish to attend the annual ESVD-ECVD congress as well as European veterinarians who wish to attend the World Congress. This grant is meant to foster veterinary dermatology education in less well-funded countries and in addition it is open to all veterinarians with high interesst in veterinary dermatology, who are in a substantial financial need.
ESVD wants to help to nurture a new generation of dermatologists to bring them into our derm family. We believe that this positive energy flow raises the horizons of the whole derm community, making it bigger, fresher and richer.
