The Zoetis Foundation and the American Veterinary Medical Foundation are pleased to announce the 2022 Zoetis Foundation/AVMF Veterinary Technician Student Scholarship Program. 2022 is the inaugural year of this program that was developed to offset educational expenses related to attaining a veterinary education. The program focuses on addressing the issue of student debt, as well as the need to foster diversity in the profession - issues that greatly impact the future of the veterinary profession.
In addition to the traditional selection criteria of academic excellence and financial need, the scholarships will focus on meeting the ongoing needs of the veterinary profession – diversity, sustainability, and mixed/rural medicine practices. Scholarships will be awarded to students with career interests in all areas, including food animal medicine, small animal clinical medicine, research, government services, public health, organized veterinary medicine, etc.
Through the Zoetis Foundation/AVMF Veterinary Technician Student Scholarship Program, AVMF and school leadership will identify outstanding veterinary technician students who can help address our changing world and the health, food, and welfare needs of the U.S. veterinary community.
