Richard W. Newpher: Perpetuating the Spirit of Veterinary Humanity
The Pennsylvania Friends of Agriculture Foundation has a scholarship program aimed at encouraging students to pursue veterinary careers in large animal agriculture.
Both the veterinary and agricultural communities of Pennsylvania are concerned about developing veterinarians who will choose to care for producers’ livestock. This is critical to our ability to manage biosecurity, public health and food safety. We firmly believe in order to entice Pennsylvania students who attend the University of Pennsylvania to create a large animal practice; we must provide scholarship assistance to them.
To this end, we ask for your assistance in this very important endeavor. Simply put, we need your help! The families of Pennsylvania need your help; farmers need your help!
Please select the Richard W. Newpher/Farm Bureau Endowed Scholarship when you donate today! We are a 501(c)(3) organization, and your donation is considered a charitable contribution and is tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
