PLIT Student Scholarship Awards and
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
- And, the PLIT has provided a $75,000 sponsorship for
the Veterinary Leadership Experience (VLE) event.
