What We Do
Did you know that less than 1% of licensed Veterinarians in the United States of America are African-American?
The Charles Shelton Foundation is a national non-profit organization dedicated to helping Black African American students studying Veterinary Medicine or Technology afford the costs of higher education.
Since 2012, the Charles Shelton Foundation has been providing scholarships to high school graduates and college students pursuing a higher education degree in Veterinary Medicine and Technology.
