Scholarships for Veterinary Students
Veterinary students commit to four years of study and sacrifice to earn a DVM degree. This illustration breaks down one year of expenses that these students must incur to achieve their dreams. Our students are a great investment - donate to the scholarship fund now!
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.
The Josh Howle Memorial Scholarship Fund
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.
Class of 1958 — Sidney A. Ewing Graduate Scholarship Fund
The purpose of this fund is to establish an endowed graduate scholarship honoring Sidney A. Ewing and the College of Veterinary Medicine Class of 1958. The scholarship will be for a graduate student studying parasitology, with preference given to a student who has an interest in vector-borne diseases. The scholarship is renewable throughout their career as a graduate student in parasitology. The selection of the recipient will be made by the veterinary parasitology faculty.
