The scholarships were established to attract students to enter food animal practice, as well as support large animal veterinary students in their education.

The 2014 scholarship recipients are:

"With the increasing costs of a veterinary medical education, scholarships are even more important than ever to all veterinary students, not just those involved in food animal medicine, however, AABP’s goal is to further the success of veterinarians working in the beef and dairy industries," Geni Wren, spokesperson for the AABP says.
