Calling all Nevada friends! The Nevada WICHE Professional Student Exchange Program (PSEP) provides financial assistance and partial loan forgiveness to Nevada students who must leave the state for professional education at a WICHE participating institution Since Nevada does not have an in-state veterinary school, WICHE is really important specifically for students aspiring to become veterinarians. I accepted a WICHE PSEP funding offer to attend WSU. Due to COVID-19, the Nevada WICHE office is facing substantial reductions in their budget and the office may not have the funding needed to support WICHE students. We must discuss the importance of WICHE’s PSEP with our representatives and fight to make sure WICHE PSEP is not defunded.

If you're interested in helping, please contact NV elected officials Who's My Legislator / What's My District
Senator Jacky Rosen https://www.rosen.senate.gov/contact_jacky
Senator Catherine Cortez Masto https://www.cortezmasto.senate.gov/contact/connect
Governor Steve Sisolak http://gov.nv.gov/Forms/Share/

Here is a sample message:

"I am writing to discuss the urgent importance of maintaining funding to the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE) Professional Student Exchange Program (PSEP). Due to COVID-19, the WICHE office is facing substantial reductions in their budget and the office may not have the funding needed to support WICHE students. This will negatively impact Nevada students who must leave the state to pursue professional education, like veterinary school. Since Nevada does not have an in-state veterinary school, the least expensive option for Nevada students is to pursue a veterinary program at a WICHE participating institution.

WICHE’s PSEP funding is critical for students. Without an in-state option, Nevada students hoping to become veterinarians face substantial increases in debt burden due to high out-of-state tuition costs. WICHE-supported Nevada professionals are guaranteed to work a minimum of 2-4 years in Nevada, which helps to alleviate workforce shortages. WICHE also creates additional employment opportunities that help contribute to a robust Nevada economy. If Nevada is forced to cut funding to WICHE’s PSEP, both the students and the great state of Nevada will face significant losses.

I ask that funding remain available to the hardworking students of Nevada. Please consider the negative impact on students if they are unable to receive WICHE funding to pursue professional education. This funding is vital to Nevada students who are otherwise unable to take on the debt burden that would come with attending an out-of-state veterinary school.

Students have made major life and financial decisions based on WICHE funding and it is deeply unfair to defund WICHE’s PSEP at this time. WICHE funding will alleviate a crushing amount of educational debt for Nevada students. Please do not defund WICHE PSEP."

Thank you and please DM me if you have any questions :)
