Second- and third-year veterinary students pursuing a career in equine medicine are encouraged to apply for one of five $5,000 scholarships being awarded through the newly created Merck Animal Health/American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) Foundation Scholarship Program.

The scholarship program is open to AAEP student members who are active within any of the AAEP’s 40 student chapters at colleges of veterinary medicine in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and the Caribbean. Each chapter can submit one candidate to compete for these five scholarships.

Every year, Merck Animal Health collaborates with numerous educational and veterinary organizations to ensure the advancement of animal health and we are proud to partner with the AAEP Foundation on this initiative
