These funds are not intended to be used for routine expenses nor as a consistent supplement to a student’s education funding sources. Requests should be those that are urgent in nature.||
Applicant must be a currently enrolled DVM student at Louisiana State University and A&M College (Baton Rouge) in good standing and have temporary financial hardship.
