The Zebra Foundation 

The Zebra Foundation for Veterinary Zoological Education was created with the objective of helping veterinary students and surgeons from anywhere in the world gain additional experience in zoological and wildlife medicine. Whatever your current role, this foundation exists to assist all those with a direct interest and ambition in advancing this specialist field.

This is done mainly in the form of financial awards to assist the initiation and completion of projects with relevant zoological content. This could be an elective study as part of a degree or higher qualification, field or laboratory research.

The Zebra Foundation is a registered charity, funded by public donations, and the EAZWV together with the British Veterinary Zoological Society (BVZS), is a substantial supporter of this foundation.

The trustees meet twice yearly to assess and determine awards and the deadlines for applications are the 31st of March and the 30th of September. Application forms, further details, and examples of previous successful projects can be found in the BVZS website.
