Thanks to generous donations from the community, we can now offer additional financial assistance to our DVM students who find themselves in immediate financial need, due to no fault of their own. It's an unfortunate reality that students sometimes find themselves experiencing the possibility of eviction or food insecurity because of unforeseen life events, but we are dedicated to ensuring we do everything we can to support them during their time in vet school. We are so grateful to our donors who contribute to this and make this support a reality.

Apply for emergency funding

To apply to receive emergency funding, apply through the Dean of Student’s Office online application. Make sure to indicate that you are a veterinary medicine student. If you have any questions or need help applying, please contact the Office of Academic Affairs.
