Boehringer Ingelheim Launches BVDzero Scholarship for Veterinary Students Globally

Boehringer Ingelheim is delighted to announce the 2019-2020 veterinary student scholarship programme. This programme reflects Boehringer Ingelheim’s long-term commitment to promoting health and well-being of farm animals.

Through the BVDzero Scholarship Programme, Boehringer Ingelheim aims to create awareness of BVD in veterinary students. In addition, the company believes that such initiatives will help increase BVD awareness in general and, as a result, help reduce its prevalence.

Each scholarship winner will also receive free registration and accommodation at the upcoming World Buiatrics Congress in Madrid in 2020, compliments of Boehringer Ingelheim.
