First Recipients of New Veterinary Scholarship

Pfizer Animal Health announced today the first recipients of a new $2 million scholarship program for U.S. veterinary students.

The initiative, designed to support the future of the veterinary profession, will provide up to $2 million in scholarships over its first three years.  Administered in partnership with the American Veterinary Medical Foundation (AVMF), the program is an opportunity for Pfizer Animal Health to further demonstrate its support of veterinary education, as well as its commitment to encouraging more students to focus on food-animal practice and increasing diversity in the profession.

In the initial year of the program, Pfizer Animal Health has awarded 222 second- and third-year U.S. veterinary students with a total of $555,000 in scholarships.  Scholarship recipients, who hail from 28 U.S. veterinary schools accredited through the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), are from diverse backgrounds, ages, genders, physical disability and ethnicity. Although open to all students, 18 percent represent students from diverse backgrounds, and two-thirds are studying to practice food-animal veterinary medicine.


We at welcome and support such commitments to strengthen the long-term viability of the veterinary profession!
