Dr. Howard Hochman was a passionate veterinarian who worked at the Connecticut Beardsley Zoo for nearly fifty years. He enjoyed working at his private practice, Brookside Veterinary Clinic in Bridgeport, Connecticut where he treated small animals as well as birds and exotics for over 30 years.

Last year, Dr. Howard passed away at the age of 90. Despite his age, Howard was still working because of his lifelong passion for animals as well as his love for teaching everyone he met. 

This scholarship aims to honor the life of Dr. Howard Hochman by supporting students who share his passion for animals. 

Any high school or undergraduate student in Connecticut who has at least a 3.0 GPA and plans to pursue a career in zoology or veterinary sciences may apply for this scholarship. 

To apply, tell us about your passion for animals, how you plan to impact the animal world, and how your major involves animals.
