Veterinary students have until November 28 to register for the 2019 Zoetis Veterinary Student Scholarship Awards.
Recipients will each receive $2,000 for the upcoming 2019-2020 academic year. Zoetis Inc. and the Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges (AAVMC) will partner again in 2019 to provide scholarships to second- and third-year veterinary students in the United States and Caribbean.
Visit www.vetvance.com/opportunities to apply. New this year, students can also apply via the VETVANCE mobile app, which is available for download from the Google Play Store and the iOS App Store.
To date, the Zoetis Veterinary Student Scholarship program has awarded over 3,000 scholarships totaling more than $6 million.
Eligibility criteria include academic excellence, financial need, diversity, sustainability, leadership and career interest. Scholarships will be awarded to students in all areas of professional interest, including food animal medicine, small animal clinical medicine, research, government services, public health, and organized veterinary medicine.
Now in its tenth year, the Veterinary Scholarship Award operates as part of Zoetis’ Commitment to Veterinarians, a platform created by Zoetis to support leadership and diversity among future veterinarians while also helping to offset the significant costs associated with a veterinary education.
Winners will be announced at the 2019 Student American Veterinary Medical Association Symposium. VETVANCE is a free educational resource sponsored by Zoetis that provides veterinary students and recent graduates with online content relating to professional development, business skills, professional stewardship, financial literacy, personal wellness, and more.
