PLIT Student Scholarship Awards and Sponsorships

The PLIT is here to help veterinary students prepare for and protect their futures, and we are pleased to invest in you, the next generation of veterinarians. This includes significant financial support through scholarship awards and sponsorships. 

  • For the fourth consecutive year, the PLIT donated $96,000 in scholarships to veterinary schools in an effort to assist future veterinarians with the overwhelming concern of student debt. A $3,000 scholarship was awarded to thirty-two veterinary schools that the Trust Veterinarians visit.
  • The PLIT also invested $100,000 in ALL for Students (ALL standing for Achieving, Leading, and Learning), which provides up to $7,000 annually at each SCAVMA chapter.
  • The PLIT is also a platinum sponsor of the Veterinary Business Management Association (VBMA), with a $100,000 grant for VBMA chapters to use to support their activities.
  • And, the PLIT has provided a $75,000 sponsorship for the Veterinary Leadership Experience (VLE) event.
