Application form

  • All applications must be completed electronically.
  • A committee with representatives from the CVMA and the UC Davis faculty will review applications and select finalists at a meeting in June 2017.
  • Finalists will then be paired with a faculty mentor in their area of interest to refine a proposal describing what they hope to achieve during their fellowship. This step is critical so both you and the faculty know what your goals are, and we know those goals can be met within the fellowship experience.
  • Final selection will take place in August 2017.
