QUESTION:

Did you receive any scholarships for vet school? Do you know of any specifically for African-Americans and/or women in Veterinary Medicine? Congratulations on graduating!

 

ANSWER: 

First off, thank you! Second, I do not know of any veterinary scholarships that are specifically for African American women. There is at least one scholarship available for women in general and several for minorities. I did receive scholarships while I was in vet school, however they were regional and university specific. I recommend searching for scholarships that focus on the health/medical field instead of limiting yourself to a description that specially says veterinary medicine. After all, vet med is a subsection of healthcare and medicine.
