Zoetis, American Veterinary Medical foundations offer scholarships for veterinary technician students

Veterinary technician students in the U.S. and Puerto Rico are eligible for a new scholarship program recently announced by the Zoetis Foundation and the American Veterinary Medical Foundation.

The Zoetis Foundation Veterinary Technician Scholarship program will provide $1,000 scholarships to up to 270 students. This program is funded by a grant from the Zoetis Foundation and will be managed by the American Veterinary Medical Foundation.

Jeannette Ferran Astorga, executive vice president of corporate affairs, communications and sustainability at Zoetis and president of the Zoetis Foundation, said in a news release that the program recognizes student leadership and aims to promote diversity among future veterinary technicians by helping to offset the significant costs associated with education.
