LEXINGTON, Ky. - Two $2,500 scholarships for veterinary students are available through the Kentucky Cattlemen's Association and are funded by the Kentucky Cattlemen's Foundation.


These scholarships are awarded to third- or fourth-year Kentucky students currently enrolled in a college of veterinary medicine. Students who hold the scholarship during their third year of vet school may reapply for the scholarship for their fourth year of vet school.


A strong background in Kentucky's cattle industry as well as intentions to return to Kentucky and practice food animal medicine are suggested for this scholarship.


Completed applications must be accompanied by a letter of recommendation from a faculty member. The deadline to submit applications to the Kentucky Cattlemen’s Foundation is Aug. 28.
