The Jamie Netschert Fund
for Veterinary Students
Studying to be a vet is an expensive business, so we are pleased to announce the creation of The Jamie Netschert Fund as an endowed fund that will provide vet students with much needed grants to support different aspects of their studies. This might include help towards work experience or elective costs, or grants towards necessary equipment or specialist clothing for example.
The fund has been established in the name of the late Dr Bruce ‘Jamie’ Netschert who died in November 2016 at his home in Virginia, USA. Jamie studied at Selwyn from 1975 and retained a close interest in the college throughout his career. He went on to run the Clifton-Centreville Animal Clinic in Centreville, Virginia.
The fund has been established by Jamie’s wife, Donna, who would be delighted if other Veterinary alumni wanted to contribute to the fund so that more students might benefit in the years ahead.
Contributions to the fund can be made via the Selwyn alumni website and select 'Jamie Netschert Fund' in the drop-down menu, or by phoning +44 (0)1223 767 845.
Alumni in the US can make 501(c)(3) donations to the fund via Cambridge in America, via the Selwyn website, or directly at Supporting Cambridge.
