Deadline looming for veterinary incentive program

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The deadline for applications to the 2012 Kentucky Large/Food Animal Veterinary Incentive Program is Dec. 1.

The program is aimed at helping alleviate shortages in the state's large-animal medical workforce by offering financial assistance to qualified veterinary graduates who have school loans to be repaid.

A judging committee will select three people from among graduates who choose to pursue a veterinary career that devotes at least 50 percent of its time to large/food animals. Selected incentive program recipients will be announced in January and may receive up to $18,000 over three years for payment toward outstanding school loans.

Applications must be postmarked for submission by Dec. 1 to: Scholarship Coordinator, KFB Education Foundation, P.O. Box 20700, Louisville, KY 40250-0700.
