Purdue Veterinary Student Receives Scholarship in AASV Student Poster Competition
The American Association of Swine Veterinarians (AASV) provided an opportunity for 15 veterinary students to compete for awards in its Veterinary Student Poster Competition, and one of the award recipients is Gabby Fry, of the Purdue DVM Class of 2021. Newport Laboratories sponsored the competition, offering awards totaling $4000, which were presented at the AASV annual meeting this month in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.
Gabby was among nine students who each received a $200 scholarship. On the basis of scores received in the original judging of abstracts submitted for the AASV Student Seminar, the top 15 abstracts not selected for oral presentation at the annual meeting were eligible to compete in the poster competition. A panel of three AASV practitioners interviewed the competing students and scored their posters to determine the scholarship awards. In addition to the poster competition awards, each student poster participant received a $250 travel stipend from Zoetis and the AASV. The awards were announced at the AASV luncheon held on March 11.
