The Gustav Rosenberger Memorial Fund is a tribute to Dr Gustav Rosenberger, the founding father of the World Association for Buiatrics. The objective of the fund is to “further improve bovine medicine at an international level and to stimulate bovine research in its broadest sense’. During the years many young scientists from South America, Eastern Europe, Asia and Africa have been awarded with grants to be used for educational and research purposes.
The GRMF Award
The GRMF award is delivered to young and promising cattle veterinarians who:
▪ Come from a country where bovine medicine needs further development;
▪ Have an attractive plan they are working on in that field;
▪ Intend to apply the knowledge obtained in that country .
The grant is to be used for an educative period of at least 3 months, which is intended to increase the candidates knowledge on bovine veterinary medicine by following courses or doing research.
Candidates for the GRMF grant are veterinarians, working in bovine medicine, and have been graduated no longer than 10 years at the moment they receive the grant. Candidates will send an application form ultimately October 15th 2021 as is presented on the website of the GRMF: (Submission requirements and forms)
Due to the COVID-19 circumstances and the lack of international physical meetings where cattle veterinarians get together, the board of the Gustav Rosenberger Memorial Fund decided together with its current sponsor MSD Animal Health to present the Gustav Rosenberger Award 2021 during a local event. Thanks to MSD Animal Health we can also work on our mission, even when there are no big conferences with great exposure. This year we will not bring the award winner to such a conference to receive the award but we will bring the award to the winner. How and when we do that will – of course – depend on who the winner is. If you are interested in applying for this award or know somebody who is interested, please fill in the online submission form before 15 October 2021!
