The EVECCS Veterinary Nurse/Technician scholarship

In memory of Louise O’Dwyer


Dear EVECCS members,

New year is the time for new projects, that is why we are happy to announce the creation of this new EVECCS grant.

EVECCS is extremely thankful to Louise for her dedication in spreading ECC knowledge throughout the Veterinary Nurse/Technician community. We all know that she was an amazing speaker and for sure several Nurses/Technicians decided to come to our congress to be able to meet and learn from Louise.

Based on this huge contribution, EVECCS has decided to create a scholarship in Louise’s honour. The purpose of this scholarship is to provide support for eligible EVECCS Nurse/Technician members who may not otherwise be able to attend (due to financial limitations) the European Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Congress. By setting up this scholarship, Louise’s willingness to share Veterinary ECC knowledge can continue.


Application will open from January 15th 2020 to January 31th 2020. Application form will be available on the EVECCS website ( during this period.
