LVMA/AAEP Foundation Scholarship Awarded


The Louisiana Veterinary Medical Association (LVMA) Equine Committee recently named Jill Baillie of the Louisiana State University Class of 2000 as the recipient of the 1999 LVMA foundation scholarship.

The scholarship, which is allocated at $1,500 per year, is awarded to junior students entering their senior year at the LSU College of Veterinary Medicine. The LVMA Equine Committee has pledged nearly $25,000 to the AAEP Foundation over a period of three years to fund scholarships for students in veterinary school at LSU.

"The LVMA's contribution is a great example of the ways state organizations can assist veterinary students through a partnership with the AAEP Foundation," explained Clay Murray, AAEP industry liaison director.

The American Association of Equine Practitioners, headquartered in Lexington, Kentucky, was founded in 1954 as a non-profit organization dedicated to the health and welfare of the horse. Currently, AAEP reaches more than 5 million horse owners through its 6,500 members worldwide and is actively involved in ethics issues, practice management, research and continuing education in the equine veterinary profession and horse industry.
