THE ANGEL–(BUSINESS WIRE) – Veterinarian-founded cannabis company VETCBD Hemp announced today that applications are open for its first Memorial Scholarship program for veterinary students, veterinary technicians, and veterinary engineering students across the country.
With this program, VETCBD is giving back to the veterinary community while investing in the future of veterinary medicine and research. Each $ 1,000 scholarship awarded is used toward a student’s tuition fees. Named after a popular pet in the VETCBD family, Scholarships ensure that their memories live on through the work of veterinarians and veterinary technicians.
“Our inspiration for creating this first-of-its-kind scholarship opportunity, combining cannabis and veterinary medicine, came from the traditional stigma of cannabis in the veterinary field,” said Dr. Tim Shu, Founder and CEO of VETCBD. “Our goal is to change that stigma while continuing to invest in animal health and wellbeing. In states like Colorado, millions of dollars in scholarships have been funded through the legal sale of cannabis, and at VETCBD we want to directly support those who work to help animals live healthy lives. ”
VETCBD awards six scholarships to the following groups every six months: two veterinary students, two veterinary technology students and two registered veterinary technicians (RVT) with existing academic debt. To participate, applicants must be nominated by a colleague and are selected based on their ability to integrate and nurture their colleagues, create a positive environment for teamwork, and show compassion and empathy for their patients, clients and colleagues. Applications must be submitted by October 1st, 2021 at the latest.
