In 2014 Dr. Dale and Liza Grotelueschen established an endowed scholarship within the NVMA Centennial Scholarship Foundation to periodically award scholarships to veterinary practitioners enrolled in graduate studies. The purpose is to encourage and assist veterinarians with practice experience who are pursuing an advanced degree in the area of Veterinary Production Medicine and Epidemiology. Dr. and Mrs. Grotelueschen are long-term members of the NVMA and NVMA Auxiliary and supporters of the Centennial Scholarship Foundation since its inception.

The Grotelueschen Scholarship application form is at the bottom of this page.
