“We recognize some of the best teachers are those effectively providing services to their clients while managing the business of veterinary medicine in their practices. Not everything can be taught in the classroom,” Braun says. “Not only are we providing financial support, we make sure that these students are given access to additional educational resources and opportunities to network with other veterinarians who have been in practice for several years. We feel these can lead to a successful career in a robust veterinary community.”
Zoetis supports the scholarships through its FFA and AABP Foundation Support Program, a unique partnership with veterinarians, animal health suppliers and dealers. The program offered a 1% rebate on select Zoetis cattle products from Feb. 1 to April 30, 2013. Participating partners were able to direct funds to any local FFA chapter(s) or the AABP Foundation-Zoetis Veterinary Student Scholarship Fund.
