Veterinary surgeons who can keep it “short and sweet” have a chance to win an all (reasonable) expenses paid trip to BVA Congress thisSeptember.

The RCVS Trust is offering to pay the registration fee, travel, plus food and accommodation costs for two nights for two vets to attend the whole conference.

The catch? Would-be delegates must have graduated within the past eight years and be able to explain – in 50 words or less – how this support would benefit them educationally.

Cherry Bushell RCVS Trust Director Cherry Bushell said: “It is a bit of a light-hearted approach, however, the idea is to make relatively new vets think in a focused way about what they would get out of going to BVA Congress. They need to tell us how they will benefit educationally from the opportunity we’re offering – it’s not simply about financial need.”

Applicants should send an email to including their name and contact details and, in less than 50 words, convince the trust that they would get the most out of attending BVA Congress. The deadline for entry is August 24, but only the first 100 emails received will be considered. Registration fees will be paid directly to the BVA and all costs claimed must be reasonable.

The BVA 2009 Annual Congress will be held at the Mecure Holland House Hotel, Cardiff, from 24-26 September. Click here for further details.
