VIN Foundation Announces 2nd Annual Solutions for the Profession Competition
Second annual essay competition provides veterinary students with an opportunity to provide hindsight into the veterinary school experience.
The VIN Foundation is excited to announce its second annual Solutions for the Profession Competition. The essay competition offers veterinary students an opportunity to share what they wish they had known prior to applying to or entering the program.
Last year’s essays provided innovative solutions to problems facing the veterinary profession. The winning essays covered areas of veterinary student debt, gender inequality, and mental health challenges.
VIN Foundation’s Board Chairman, Dr. Richard Headley, stated “This essay competition provides an opportunity for veterinary students to participate in helping to improve the veterinary school experience with hindsight. I am honored the VIN Foundation is able to shed light on how we can collaborate to positively impact the profession for future generations.”
Three entrants will win cash scholarships to help support tuition and education related expenses:
• First place: $3,000
• Second place: $1,500
• Third place: $1,000
The VIN Foundation Solutions for the Profession Committee will select the top entries in the first round of judging. These essays will be assessed by experts in the topic areas, who will pass the top entries to three well-known leaders in the veterinary profession. These final judges will determine the winners.
