Zoetis, AABP To Award $5,000 Scholarships To Bovine Students

June 15 Deadline Set for Bovine Scholarship Requests

The American Association of Bovine Practitioners has 6,000 member veterinarians.

Some $385,000 has been handed out over the past four years to 77 students enrolled in U.S. veterinary colleges.

The application deadline is June 15. More information is available at foundation.aabp.org/zoetis.

“Students should take advantage of this opportunity to reduce their debt and focus on their studies,” said M. Gatz Riddell Jr., DVM, executive vice president of AABP. “While reviewing applications, AABP and Zoetis look to support well-rounded veterinary students—those that not only excel in the classroom and clinical work but are also involved in industry-related activities.”

The scholarship program is administered by the AABP Foundation with the assistance of the Amstutz Scholarship Committee.

Among 23 students awarded the scholarship in 2011 was Claire McPhee, DVM, a North Carolina State University graduate who now works at Udder Health Systems in Bellingham, Wash.

“Receiving this scholarship decreased my debt load, which allowed me to focus on finding a job that was a good fit for me,” Dr. McPhee said.

The 2013 winners will be announced before the AABP Annual Conference, which is scheduled for Sept. 19 to 21 in Milwaukee.

Zoetis, formerly Pfizer Animal Health, develops and manufactures veterinary vaccines and medicines. The company is based in Madison, N.J.
