Army Veterinary Corps Scholarships
On April 29, 2006, four D.V.M. students were awarded scholarships from the U.S. Army's Health Profession Scholarship program. Three-year scholarships were awarded to Noel Plaetz and Emilee White of the class of 2009. Ryan Reid and Stephanie Kennedy of the D.V.M. class of 2008, received two-year scholarships.
These students are among only 40 students in the nation to receive the scholarships, which cover the full cost of their veterinary education. Upon completion of their veterinary education, the graduates will be commissioned in the U.S. Army Veterinary Corps. Recently commissioned in the Corps was Jonathan Shearer, class of 2006.
