The Board of Directors of the Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society are honored to offer the sixth annual Steve Haskins Memorial Scholarship in 2021. Dr. Haskins was a pioneer of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care, and his untimely passing remains a huge loss for our profession and society. He was truly an amazing individual who remained a tireless force for the improvement of the lives of animals through advancement of veterinary emergency and critical care.
The purpose of this scholarship is to provide support for eligible VECCS members who may not otherwise be able to attend (due to financial limitations) the International Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Symposium. Dr. Haskins was the only individual to have spoken at every IVECCS meeting, and was presented the President’s Award at IVECCS 2013 to recognize his unique contributions to our Society and specialty. This scholarship was first awarded to eight recipients in 2014 as a way for VECCS to give back to our profession, support our members, and promote the VECCS mission: “Improving access and quality of emergency and critical care to every patient in need”.
The details of the award are as follows:
