ACV Student Group Funding

In recent years, the ACV Executive has budgeted for $1,500.00 (inc GST if applicable) per university per year for an event or function to promote involvement in cattle and rural practice and membership to the Cattle Special Interest Group of the Australian Veterinary Association.

Over past years, university Bovine Appreciation Groups (BAGs) or other student groups have accessed this funding to run rural practice days often coupled with a social event where students interact with cattle practitioners.

To access the funding, student groups must comply with the following requirements:

  • apply in writing well in advance of the proposed event
  • provide a budget and program of their planned activity
  • ensure that the program/event has a focus on bovine related activities
  • provide an opportunity and some funding for attendance by ACV members
  • promote membership to the AVA and ACV
  • provide a GST compliant Tax Invoice and a student group bank account into which the funds can be paid
  • provide a written report for the ACV journal including photographs with captions of the event and necessary publication releases if applicable

To apply please email the ACV office
