AVMF logoThe American Veterinary Medical Foundation, in partnership with the Harold Wetterberg Foundation, is once again awarding scholarships to current or former residents of New Jersey who are pursuing a career in veterinary medicine.

Applicants must be second- or third-year veterinary students or students enrolled in postgraduate education in veterinary medicine, have graduated from a New Jersey high school, and have had a 3.0 GPA or higher at their veterinary school and undergraduate school. Preference is given to students pursuing dual degrees and those who have graduated from or attended a university in New Jersey.

Award amounts range from $5,000-$15,000 to the winners; previous recipients are eligible to apply. The deadline for this scholarship program is March 15, and further information can be found at the AVMF website.
