Overview:

The purpose of the AABP Amstutz Scholarship is to identify and support the most superior students in the 2nd year of veterinary school that demonstrate the character, knowledge, experience, motivation, and potential to become outstanding bovine veterinarians in the United States and Canada, prepared to meet the needs of the 21st century. The scholarship provides them with a one-time cash award to be used at their discretion to provide them with unique educational experiences to maximize their preparation for the future.

Amstutz Scholarships are funded by the AABP Amstutz Scholarship Fund, AABP member donations, and the annual scholarship auction at the AABP Annual Conference. In addition Elanco Animal Health has generously supported the program for the past 20 years. In 2016, seven $7,500 scholarships were granted to American and Canadian veterinary students.

The Scholarship Committee determines the dollar amount of the scholarships and the number to be granted each year. Scholarship recipients will be encouraged to attend the AABP Annual Conference in Omaha, Nebraska, September, 14-16, 2017 to receive their awards in person. The funds are presented to those Amstutz Scholarship recipients attending the Annual Conference, but their attendance is not mandatory to receive the funds.
