Your scholarship gift is an investment in the next generation of veterinary oncologists. With your help, we can attract the most promising candidates who may one day find the key to preventing or curing cancer. Educating future cancer specialists is central to our mission. In fact, we have trained more surgical, medical, and radiation oncologists than any other veterinary institution in the world. Until the day we conquer cancer, the need for additional veterinary oncologists continues to grow as millions of pets are diagnosed with cancer each year. To assure every pet has access to expert oncology care, we need to train more specialists. To do that, we need your partnership.
