In mid March 54 veterinary students from around the world received scholarships from Merck Animal Health, in partnership with the American Veterinary Medical Foundation (AVMF).

Through the Merck Animal Health Veterinary Student Scholarship Program, the selected second- and third-year students pursuing careers in companion animal or large animal medicine each receive a $5,000 scholarship to support their education.

The AVMF, the charitable arm of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), has supported veterinary students for more than five decades.

These award recipients from U.S. veterinary schools accredited through the AVMA were selected based on academic excellence, financial need, leadership and area of interest within the profession. Listed here are the 2019 scholarship recipients from the U.S.
