"I feel blessed to be one of the recipients of the 2020 Merck Animal Health Scholarship," Eppler said. "It is inspiring to know that the American Veterinary Medical Foundation and Merck Animal Health are investing in my goal of becoming a small animal orthopedic surgeon."

The scholarships will provide financial assistance to students to support their educational and professional goals and opportunities, according to Karen Davis, chair, American Veterinary Medical Foundation board of advisors.

"Whether they're helping to keep pets healthy or aid in ensuring a safe, high-quality protein supply, veterinarians play a critical role not only within the animal health industry, but also within society," said Scott Bormann, senior vice president, North America, Merck Animal Health.
