Beginning in 2007, Oxbow Animal Health has awarded five scholarships each year to outstanding individuals pursuing education in the exotic and companion animal veterinary fields. Scholarships go to students at a Nebraska High School, an undergraduate, two veterinary technicians and a veterinary student.

For 2009, Oxbow Animal Health is awarding $3,500 to the following:
• Erin Monaco, Texas A&M University, College of Veterinary Medicine (Veterinary Medicine Academic Scholarship)
• Mark Andrew Nipper, Athens Technical College (Veterinary Technology Academic Scholarship)
• Julie Dorney, Cedar Valley College (Veterinary Technology Academic Scholarship)
• Irina Gruzinova, University of Arizona (Undergraduate Academic Scholarship)
• Whitney Burger, Columbus High School (Nebraska High School Scholarship)

Students apply for the scholarships at the Oxbow Animal Health website, and winners are chosen based on interest and involvement in the field of exotic animal health, excellence in the areas of academic achievement, and clarity and eloquence in expression of future career goals and interests.

"Oxbow is thrilled to support the academic endeavors of people pursuing careers focused on companion animal health and nutrition,” said Deborah Buhro, chief operating officer of Oxbow, via a press release. "The talent, energy and accomplishments of these individuals is completely invigorating. It is encouraging to know that they will be using their immense talent and enthusiasm to improve the health and well-being of animals and their caretakers for years to come.”
