WVTA Scholarship Information

Every year the WVTA sponsors a scholarship for a current veterinary technology student.

PURPOSE of the Student Scholarship

The WVTA Veterinary Technician Student Scholarship is intended to reward a student’s early professional development. This may include participation and leadership in any type of the extra-curricular activities that their educational program has to offer. A person’s education is what she or he makes of it and we are looking to recognize a student who has put the added effort into supplementing his or her own education by taking advantage of opportunities on campus and off. A student’s professional development does also include activities outside of school such as employment and volunteer experience.

$500

Mentorship from board member of the WVTA
