“My top three choices for college were very competitive, but what really pushed my decision to attend UNH was that I would be able to continue to help my little sister, who has Down syndrome, show our animals at 4-H fairs around the state, while still achieving goals for my career. My experience with 4-H affirmed that I want to pursue a career in veterinary medicine. I look forward to seeking out opportunities at UNH to work on a research project, preferably related to large ruminants.”
UNH offers scholarships to New Hampshire 4-H program participants. Eligible candidates can receive up to $5,000 per year to attend UNH, based on number of years they have participated in 4-H.
