ZOETIS/AABP VETERINARY STUDENT SCHOLARSHIP

Enrollment Opened

Overview

Zoetis and the American Association of Bovine Practitioners (AABP) Foundation have collaborated to provide financial support to veterinary students pursuing careers in large-animal veterinary medicine through the Zoetis/AABP Foundation Scholarship Program. Veterinary students will be awarded $5,000 scholarships to help offset tuition costs. These scholarships will be administered by the AABP Foundation with the assistance of the Amstutz Scholarship Committee. Scholarship recipients will be encouraged (and funded) to attend the AABP Annual Conference to receive their awards in person but attendance is not required to receive the scholarship.

Scholarship Criteria

Applicants will be evaluated based upon overall interest in bovine practice, involvement in bovine-related extracurricular activities, and ability to express themselves insightfully through essay questions. Grades are considered but do not comprise the majority of the evaluation process in selecting recipients. Membership in both AABP and the local college AABP student chapter or Food Animal Club is required.

Recipient Award

Recipients of the Zoetis/AABP Foundation Scholarship will each be awarded a $5000 scholarship and invited to attend the AABP Annual Conference with paid travel and lodging expenses.
