March 13, 2014 – Dr. Tod Schadler, associate dean for student services and admissions
at Lincoln Memorial University’s College of Veterinary Medicine (LMU-CVM), has established a scholarship to benefit veterinary medical students at LMU.
The Schadler Family Diversity Scholarship will be awarded to a first-year underrepresented minority student at LMU-CVM who exhibits good academic skills (an undergraduate GPA of 3.25 or higher is preferred), has leadership skills as evidenced by leadership positions at work, organizations and/or clubs, and has engaged in community service. Applicants must also submit a short paper detailing how they feel they can be a mentor to future pre-veterinary students. Applications must be submitted by September 15, 2014.
“Diversity, leadership and community service are three important qualities in veterinary medicine,” said Schadler. “This wonderful profession has played a major role in the lives of my parents and my family. I hope this scholarship can be an incentive for the future veterinary leaders that will graduate from LMU-CVM.”
“It is exciting to see the commitment of our faculty members through the establishment of scholarships,” said Cynthia Whitt-Wall, LMU vice president for University Advancement. “Scholarships are vitally important to our students. Although the veterinary future will soon be in their hands, their preparation for the future is now in
ours. What they are taught, how they are taught, and the values we encourage are of infinite importance.”
Lincoln Memorial University’s College of Veterinary Medicine is located on the LMU main campus in Harrogate, Tenn., with additional academic facilities in nearby Lee County, Va. LMU-CVM is an integral part of the University’s Division of Health Sciences and provides real-world, community-based education in a collaborative learning environment.
