WINN and the AAFP to offer two joint scholarships for 2017

The scholarship is available to third- or fourth-year vet students studying feline medicine, health and welfare

Winn Feline Foundation (Winn) and the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) today announced two joint scholarships available for third- or fourth-year veterinary students enrolled in an accredited veterinary college or school in the United States or Canada. The two $2,500 awards will be based upon academic achievement, financial need, leadership and dedication to and excellence in the study of feline medicine, health and welfare.

The boards of directors of both the AAFP and Winn enthusiastically approved the collaboration of these two feline-dedicated organizations in implementing these two joint scholarships: one $2,500 scholarship for a veterinary student with a feline practice interest; the second $2,500 scholarship for a veterinary student with a clinical scientific research interest.

All applications will be reviewed, selected and approved by the AAFP and Winn. In addition to a short application form, interested students will also be required to answer two essay questions asking for the applicant to explain his/her specific interest and background in feline health and welfare and to describe plans for future participation in feline medicine.

The deadline for the scholarships is March 17, 2017. The winning recipient will be notified of their award on or before April 15th, 2017.

Applications and instructions are available shortly on each organization’s websites: Winn website and the AAFP website.
