San Luis Obispo, Calif. -- CANIDAE Pet Foods, manufacturer of all-natural holistic pet foods, will offer four veterinary medicine scholarships in 2010 worth $2,500 each.

The scholarships will be given to full-time first- and second-year graduate students who are enrolled in a veterinary medicine program at an approved institution in the United States or Canada.

Judges will look for students with a strong academic history and dedication to animals’ well-being. Students also will be asked to write an essay about issues relating to the core components of CANIDAE’s Responsible Pet Ownership Mission: training and exercise, planned breeding, spaying and neutering, supporting reputable breeders and rescue groups, proper veterinarian care, and healthy nutrition.

An independent committee will choose the scholarship recipients. The application period will run from Jan. 15 to April 15, 2010. Click here to apply.
