Rex Anderson VLC Travel Award Endowment Fund


Dr. Rex R. Anderson represented his home state of Montana as a member of the AVMA House of Delegates for two decades, ultimately taking the helm as Chair of the House Advisory Committee (HAC) in 2021. He was committed to the veterinary profession until his unexpected passing in December 2022. Honoring Dr. Anderson’s passion for the profession, this fund was proposed by the HAC and other members of the veterinary community to commemorate his legacy of leadership.

The purpose of this fund is to empower the future of the profession by providing a $2,000 travel award for a veterinary student or recent graduate to attend the AVMA Veterinary Leadership Conference (VLC) each year.

“I am honored and incredibly grateful to be the recipient of the inaugural Rex Anderson Memorial Travel Endowment Scholarship. This award not only presents me with the opportunity to attend the Veterinary Leadership Conference as a representative of Montana– Dr. Anderson’s home state, but also a chance to interact with influential leaders in the field who carry on Dr. Anderson’s legacy of authenticity and passion.”
