Julia O’Rourke, of the DVM Class of 2021, has been recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC) as a recipient of the 2018 AKC Veterinary Outreach Scholarship. Eleven scholarships were awarded totaling $26,000 to students pursuing veterinary studies at universities across the U.S. The scholarships recognize individuals who have actively participated in AKC events and programs and who seek to promote animal health and medicine.

Scholarship recipients were announced in a press release issued by AKC Friday, June 22. “We are very proud of these students who have shown a proven dedication to the world of purebred dogs and balanced their demanding school schedules with participation in AKC events,” said Mari-Beth O’Neill, AKC vice president of sports services. “We look forward to seeing their impact on the future of veterinary medicine.”
