Launching the Brian Miller Memorial Bursary

Apply now! Build your wildlife veterinary expertise with the help of our new bursary.

Are you a qualified vet who has been working or volunteering with a conservation organisation or project for at least one year?

We are seeking applications from vets who would like to attend a training course or conference in 2025 which could help take their wildlife health career to the next level.

In this first year of the fund, the amount we can offer is £900. This could go towards essential travel and accommodation expenses, or course/registration fees. The choice of course or conference is up to you, but you will need to tell us why it will make a real difference to the impact you can have on the health of threatened species.

We particularly encourage applications from those working in biodiverse areas with otherwise limited access to training in wildlife veterinary medicine.

Please apply by 1st September 2024 by downloading and completing this form and sending it to o.walter@wildlifevetsinternational.org. We will send you an acknowledgement that we have received your application. We expect to announce the successful candidate by the end of October 2024 at the latest.

The Brian Miller Memorial Bursary

Following his untimely death in April this year, the Brian Miller Memorial Bursary was set up by Brian’s wife, Barbara Miller, and his daughter, Sharon Miller, who co-founded WVI in 2004, along with renowned wildlife vets Dr John Lewis and Dr Andrew Greenwood. A wildlife lover himself, Brian was immensely proud of his daughter for setting up both Wildlife Vets International and, prior to that, Amur, a charity which supported the conservation of Amur leopards and tigers. The Miller family have supported both charities over many years and we are incredibly grateful to them for this wonderful gesture in Brian’s name.

TO APPLY please download and complete this form and send it to o.walter@wildlifevetsinternational.org by 1st September 2024.

We look forward to hearing from you.
