Hogg scholarship invitation to swine vets

01-12-2008 | |

The American Association of Swine Veterinarians Foundation is offering the Hogg Scholarship, established to honour the memory of longtime AASV member and pork industry leader Alex Hogg.

Applications for the $10,000 scholarship will be accepted until Feb. 2, and the scholarship recipient will be announced on March 8, during the Foundation Luncheon at the AASV 2009 Annual Meeting in Dallas. 

The scholarship’s intent is to assist a swine veterinarian in his or her effort to return to school for graduate education (resulting in a master’s degree or higher) in an academic field of study related to swine health and production.

Hogg’s career serves as the ideal model for successful applicants. After 20 years in a mixed animal practice, he pursued a master’s degree in veterinary pathology. Hogg subsequently became a swine Extension veterinarian and professor at the University of Nebraska. Upon “retirement,” he capped off his career with his work for MVP Laboratories. Always an enthusiastic learner, at age 75 he graduated from the Executive Veterinary Program offered at the University of Illinois.
