Scholarship Winners We are pleased to announce Beth Plucinski has been awarded an APVMA scholarship with the Institute for Sustainable International Studies in Belize for a winter study abroad course. Beth is a student at Millikin University in Decatur, Ill., and will be taking the very popular Large Animal Veterinary Practices in the Tropics course, January 7 - 18. Students in this field course get amazing hands-on, practice experience with cows, horses, pigs and sheep, plus work in an animal health clinic in a local village where they get spay and neuter practice. The course is delivered primarily in and around the town of San Ignacio in the Cayo District. Students in this class come from colleges and universities all over North America and stay for a 12 day course in the winter. The same scholarships are available in the summer, June and July, when students stay for two weeks.
We are offering two APVMA scholarships each season and are taking applications for the summer session, June and July, 2015. Email Cynthia Reece, firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
