Robert and Clarice MacVicar Animal Health Scholar Award

August 31st, 2010

Call for nominations of senior graduate students for 2010-2011

Drs. Susan Tornquist, (College of Veterinary Medicine), PA Karplus (Biochemistry and Biophysics) and Theo Dreher (Microbiology) are serving as members of a committee to select a senior graduate student whose research is primarily concerned with animal health and welfare in its broadest sense and is interdisciplinary in approach, or a veterinarian in a residency program at OSU that includes research at the masters or doctoral level as part of the training program, as the 2010-11 recipient of the Robert and Clarice MacVicar Animal Health Fund Scholar Award.

Robert MacVicar was a past president of Oregon State University. He and his wife Clarice had a strong interest in the health and welfare of animals. As a result, they established a fund to support research at OSU that impacts animal health and welfare in its broadest sense, that is interdisciplinary in its approach, and represented by the areas of microbiology, biochemistry, and veterinary medicine.

The award will be made as a $5,000 stipend, with an additional $1,000 for research supplies and/or travel. Nominations of candidates should be made by faculty through their department chairs/heads and sent electronically to Debrah Rarick (Debrah.rarick@oregonstate.edu) for nominees through the College of Veterinary Medicine, or sent to Mary Fulton (mary.fulton@oregonstate.edu) for nominees through the Department of Microbiology or the Department of Biochemistry & Biophysics. Deadline is October 1, 2010.

The committee will make its recommendation to the Provost, and the successful candidate will be notified by the Provost prior to the end of fall quarter, 2010. During the spring quarter of the 2010-11 academic year, a reception for the recipient will be held, and he/she will present the Robert and Clarice MacVicar Animal Health Lecture.
