The American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) and EveryCat Health Foundation announced they are offering a scholarship of $2,500 to 2 veterinary students enrolled in an accredited veterinary college or school located in the United States or Canada. The scholarship will provide support and encouragement to students interested in pursuing a career in feline medicine or clinical scientific research of felines.

“EveryCat's mission is to advance feline health and wellbeing. We are honored to partner with the AAFP to encourage and assist students who have a passion and aptitude for feline medicine and health research with these scholarships,” said Jackie Jaakola, executive director, EveryCat Health Foundation, in a joint organizational release.1 “The future of feline medicine truly starts here.”

According to the release, the scholarships are available to students in their 3rd or 4th year of veterinary school.1 The students chosen for the scholarship will be based on academic achievement, financial need, leadership skills, and excellence in the study of feline medicine. Any interested students are asked to submit a short application and answer 2 essay questions describing their interests and background in feline medicine and wellbeing. The students must also include in their essays their goal in pursuing clinical scientific research or feline medicine.

“We are tremendously inspired by the students involved with the AAFP, and are excited to continue the partnership with EveryCat Health Foundation to engage with the next generation of veterinary professionals,” added Heather O’Steen, CAE, AAFP CEO.1 “We look forward to helping veterinary students focus on improving the standard of feline healthcare and wellbeing.”

Volunteers from EveryCat Health Foundation and the AAFP will be a part of a Scholarship Task Force where they will review the applications and select and approve the winners. The submission deadline and supplementary documents are due on March 18, 2024, by 11:59 EDT. The chosen students will be notified of their award by April 15, 2024.
