Five students earn Zoetis Foundation scholarships

Morehead State University

Five students from Morehead State’s veterinary technology program have earned scholarships from the Zoetis Foundation.

The Zoetis Foundation works with partners who provide scholarships, debt relief, and other initiatives to drive a more inclusive veterinary community and broader access to veterinary and technician training. The foundation is awarding more than 200 scholarships to eligible veterinary technician students enrolled full-time in an AVMA-accredited veterinary technology, veterinary nursing, or animal health technology program in the United States or Puerto Rico. The Zoetis Foundation has partnered with the American Veterinary Medical Foundation (AVMF), who is administering this program.

MSU students receiving the scholarship are:

  • Katelyn Chapman, a junior from Portsmouth, OH 
  • Whitney Craft, a junior from Wellington 
  • Malaya Cunningham, a post-baccalaureate student from Louisville 
  • Shelby Milam, a junior form Rush 
  • Leah Preston, a senior from Lexington 

“Student success has always been a top priority for Morehead State University Veterinary Technology Program (MSU VT),” said Dr. Amy Staton, coordinator of the program. “Graduates of our program are some of the top in the nation. Five recipients of a national scholarship from the MSU Class of 2024 speaks to the quality of education that students earn at MSU VT.”
