The Chi Academic Scholarship for faculty, residents, and graduate students was established as part of an initiative to promote TCVM in academia and research. Those affiliated with colleges of veterinary medicine (CVM) have great potential to advance TCVM through the crucial role they play in educating future veterinarians and conducting research. We encourage all faculty members, residents, and graduate students with an interest in TCVM to apply. The scholarship is granted to two CVM faculty members and one CVM resident or graduate student each year.
