Annual Grants

The Marion Cunningham Memorial Fund Grant

The MCMF Grant is awarded to students engaging in research that is practicable and relevant to current wildlife concerns. The research should enhance veterinary contributions to the welfare and management of New Zealand's wildlife and promote communication among both veterinarians and non-veterinarians with expertise in wildlife management and research. It should also encourage conservation, especially by veterinary contributions, to the management of threatened species.

The Practitioners Grant

The Wildlife Society Practitioners Grant is a new fund established in 2013 to provide support to veterinarians in practice who have a strong interest in further developing their veterinary skills in native New Zealand wildlife species. The Grant can be used for funding continuing education in this field either through online courses and/or practical placements at wildlife veterinary centres. Our purpose for such a fund is to increase the skills of general practice veterinarians in wildlife medicine and surgery and to promote the benefits of treating wildlife in practice.
