USDA-NIFA will be offering live webinars to veterinarians interested in applying to the Veterinary Medicine Loan Repayment Program (VMLRP) this year. The upcoming webinars will be held:
Monday, May 23, 2011, 10:00 A.M.
Monday, May 23, 2011, 4:00 P.M.
Don’t worry if you can’t make those times because the webinar will also be recorded and accessible from the VMLRP web site for those unable to participate in live sessions.
You can find more information on connecting to the webinar here.
Last year, USDA awarded nearly $6 million in loan repayments to 62 veterinarians across the country. These awards will go a long way toward helping ease the nation’s shortage of rural veterinarians. The final deadline for applying to this year’s round is July 8, 2011.
