An undergraduate from the Royal Veterinary College is the only person from Britain to be awarded a special scholarship in the US.

Molly Muedeking is among eight vet students receiving a $2,500 (£1,600) scholarship from the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) Foundation and insurance group Markel.

The other seven all come from the US or Canada.

The scholarships were presented at the AAEP’s 60th annual convention, which took place earlier this month in Salt Lake City.

Miss Muedeking, a final-year BVetMed student, said she was thrilled by her success.

“It was an amazing experience to go to Salt Lake City to meet other dedicated students and listen to leading veterinarians discuss emerging research and difficult cases.”

Now in its 26th year, the scholarship programme gives financial support to veterinary students who are proven leaders at their veterinary schools, advocates for equine welfare and academic achievers.

Students are nominated by representatives from their institutions with supporting references from AAEP members and clinical instructors.
