When it comes to Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) alumni who have impacted the college and the veterinary profession, Steve Ettinger ‘62, D.V.M. ’64, invariably comes to mind.

Ettinger 1962, D.V.M. 1964 Scholarship is the culmination of a long-standing wish of Julio López, D.V.M. ’08, whose relationship with Ettinger has been instrumental in shaping his own veterinary career.
