The Gustav Rosenberger Memorial Fund (GRMF) is a tribute to Dr. Gustav Rosenberger and is related to the World Association for Buiatrics. The Gustav Rosenberger Memorial Fund annually provides a grant of 10.000 € to a young and promising veterinarian, preferably from a country or area with suboptimal possibilities to develop veterinary knowledge in the field of cattle health. This year’s grant is sponsored by Boehringer Ingelheim.
The GRMF provides grants on a yearly basis to young and promising veterinarians who further develop bovine medicine in general, come from a country where bovine medicine needs further development, and intend to apply the knowledge obtained in that country and work in a specific discipline within bovine medicine that needs further development. The first point is a prerequisite, the second approach is preferred over the third.
The grant is to be used for an educative period of at least 3 months, which is intended to increase the candidate’s knowledge on bovine veterinary medicine by following courses or doing research.
Candidates for the GRMF grant are veterinarians, working in bovine medicine, and have graduated no longer than 10 years prior to receiving the grant.
In even years, the GRMF grant will be presented at the World Buiatrics Conference. In odd years, it will be presented at a convenient place to be decided on by the GRMF board.
