Past Presidents' Research Fellow Scholarship & EQUUS Foundation Research Fellow Scholarship
The AAEP Foundation established the Past Presidents' Research Fellow Scholarship in 2006 to emphasize the importance of equine research and to reward a researcher for his or her contributions. This scholarship is made possible through the monetary contributions of AAEP past presidents and is for AAEP member graduates and residents, who are completing their residency or a graduate program while participating in equine research.
The AAEP Foundation established the EQUUS Foundation Research Fellow Scholarship in 2011 to emphasize the importance of equine research and to reward researchers for their contributions.

These fellows will be awarded to two individual AAEP member graduates or residents who are completing their residency or a graduate program while participating in equine research.
The EQUUS Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization founded in 2002, mission is to improve the quality of life of horses, promote the use of horses to enrich the lives of those in need, and educate the public about the horse’s unique ability to empower, teach, and heal.
The deadline to apply for Past Presidents’ and EQUUS Foundation Research Fellows is August 1.
