Dr. Jennifer Reda, a 2015 graduate of the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine, was recently selected to receive a $4,000 scholarship from the American Association of Equine Practitioners Foundation.

Reda, now an intern at Southern Equine Service in Aiken, South Carolina, is one of six 2015 D.V.M. degree recipients selected from various veterinary medical colleges. The scholarships will be presented during the Dec. 8 AAEP Foundation Celebration, held in conjunction with the organization’s 61st annual convention in Las Vegas.

Four of the new graduates will receive the annual Zoetis/AAEP Foundation Scholarships; two other graduates, including Reda, are the inaugural recipients of the Northwestern Pennsylvania Veterinary Medical Association Equine Symposium/AAEP Foundation Scholarships.

Both scholarship programs reward graduating veterinary students with a dedication to equine medicine for their academic excellence, leadership in their school and AAEP student chapter, and their long-term goals.

Veterinary student applicants are nominated for the scholarships by representatives from their colleges. In addition to academic excellence, recipients are evaluated on their leadership abilities and involvement in activities benefiting the health and welfare of horses.

Each accredited college or school of veterinary medicine with an AAEP student chapter may use its own criteria to nominate a fourth-year veterinary student who plans to enter equine practice.
