Throughout each year of the Adams' Administration, the scholarship fund will offer a new 4-year scholarship, covering tuition expenses, to a stand-out African American student in New York City to help the, achieve a veterinary medicine degree.
"We are thrilled to launch the BHF Juneteenth Scholarship Fund with the Adams Administration, which reflects our organization's values and dedication to making a meaningful impact," said Josh Fox, founder of The Brady Hunter Foundation.1 "We believe that education is a powerful tool for change, and by supporting African American students interested in veterinary medicine, we hope to contribute to a more diverse and inclusive field.”
