'Fellows of the Future' student research submissions 2024

The RCVS Fellowship has a broader goal beyond acknowledging and honouring achievements of experienced members in the field of veterinary science. It seeks to foster growth in every veterinarian, no matter where they stand in their career, by promoting their skills and dedication.

Therefore, following previous success, we are once again calling on undergraduate vet students and recent graduates (graduating no earlier than 2023) to participate in our Fellows of the Future competition, to present their original research at Fellowship Day 2024.

Presentations should be no longer than five minutes and will be delivered at Fellowship Day before a judging panel, who will decide the overall winner of the competition.

The winner will receive £200 in National Book Tokens.

If you are interested in presenting, then please complete the form below by providing a title and summary of your research (500 words max) in a Microsoft Word document or as a PDF. You may also include up to two illustrations or diagrams in your uploaded document if desired.

Last year, we saw the highest number of applications to the competition, and the judges were impressed with the quality of research submitted. Therefore, this year, we are inviting the top ten runners up to attend Fellowship Day and create a poster of their research to be displayed on screens during the breaks. The runners up will then have the opportunity to discuss their research with Fellows on the day.

Entrants outside of the top ten will also be given the opportunity to present their research to a panel of Fellows during an online webinar session close to Fellowship Day, date to be confirmed.

Eligible overseas students from RCVS accredited institutions are also welcome to enter. All eligible universities and courses are listed on our website at

The deadline for submissions is 4pm October 1 2024. Applicants chosen to present will be informed in the week commencing October 21 2024.

If you are selected to present, we will reimburse all reasonable expenses up to £150 for attending.

All fields are required unless otherwise stated.
