Established in 1997, the World Association for the Advancement of Veterinary Parasitology African Foundation (WAAVP AF) has become a successful endowment which awards travel scholarships to Next Generation (NG) African veterinary parasitologists to present their research findings at WAAVP Biennial Conferences. The WAAVP AF goals are threefold: to support deserving awardees ready to present their research to an international audience, to develop global networks, and to bring positive recognition to their institutions, countries and academic fields. The WAAVP AF Committee oversees a successful financial investment and biennially invites over 100 global stakeholders to assist with recruitment from Africa.

To date, 211 NG veterinary parasitologists from 25 African countries submitted applications; and 80 from 16 countries have been awarded scholarships to present their research findings at WAAVP conferences in Europe, Asia, South America, North America, Australia, and New Zealand.
