Dilmus Blackmon Scholarship Fund

Donate to the Dilmus Blackmon Scholarship Fund

This scholarship honors Dr. Dilmus Blackmon (DVM ’56), a retired UGA professor of large animal medicine. Dr. Blackmon was a field service clinician for many years and served as the large animal medicine department chair for 10 years prior to his retirement in 1994. Known for his humor, good cheer and humanity, as well as his veterinary skills, Dr. Blackmon is revered by many of his fellow colleagues, former students and clients. Once fully funded, this scholarship will benefit a veterinary student with a concentration in equine medicine or large animal mixed practice.

Josh Howle

The Josh Howle Memorial Scholarship Fund

Donate to the Josh Howle Memorial Scholarship

The Josh Howle Memorial Scholarship was started to honor an amazing student, friend, son, and brother whose life was lost too soon.

Josh had a bright smile and a light sense of humor. Anyone who met Josh was drawn to his thoughtfulness, open mind and his work ethic. Even at his young age, he had already demonstrated a talent for veterinary medicine, specifically cattle reproduction. Through this scholarship, Josh’s giving spirit and dreams of becoming a veterinarian will live on.

A total of $25,000 must initially be raised in order for Josh’s scholarship to become an official endowment, after which the scholarship will be awarded each year to a deserving student. Like Josh, the recipient of this scholarship would be a South Carolina resident accepted into the UGA College of Veterinary Medicine program with an interest in cattle reproduction.
