(Post by Quarter Horse News – Full Link At Bottom) Thirty-six veterinary students preparing for careers in equine medicine recently received a combined $54,000 in financial support through the 2019 Winner’s Circle Scholarship Program.

The Winner’s Circle scholarships, managed by The Race For Education, help ease the financial burden of a veterinary education by providing an opportunity for third- and fourth-year veterinary students to earn $1,500 scholarships. Students are selected for scholarships based on their leadership roles and dedication to a future in equine healthcare.

The program is co-sponsored by the American Association of Equine Practitioners’ (AAEP) Foundation, Platinum Performance and The Race For Education. Since its establishment in 2008, the Winner’s Circle Scholarship Program has provided more than $1.5 million in scholarships to 384 veterinary students.

“The cost of veterinary school continues to present challenges to talented students who have the passion for and endeavor to enter the equine veterinary profession,” said Dr. Richard Mitchell, AAEP Foundation Advisory Council chairman. “We are grateful to all of our donors and especially thank our partners The Race For Education and Platinum Performance for their 12 years of support for future equine practitioners.”
