Don Low Fellowship

Due to circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, including adhering to social distancing and limiting public gatherings, the Don Low Fellowship is postponed for the 2021/22 academic year. We will post updated details on the 2022/23 application cycle in Spring 2022. If you have any questions, please email us at

The Donald G. Low-CVMA Practitioner Fellowship, a joint activity between the California Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA) and the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, is designed to meet California practitioner needs not available within residencies or other current programs. It is specifically intended for California practitioners.

Fellowship Description

Meet the Fellows: 2019-20202018-2019 | 2017-2018 | 2016-2017 | 2015-2016

General Application Procedures:

  • All applications must be completed electronically.
  • A committee with representatives from the CVMA and the UC Davis faculty will review applications and select finalists at a meeting in June.
  • Finalists will then be paired with a faculty mentor in their area of interest to refine a proposal describing what they hope to achieve during their fellowship. This step is critical so both you and the faculty know what your goals are, and we know those goals can be met within the fellowship experience.
  • Final selection will take place in August.
