Due to the generosity of our many donors, the Office of Academic Affairs is able to award scholarships to DVM students each year. Award criteria vary, but can be based on academic achievement, financial need, state of residency, species interest, character, and other designations. In years past, some 300 scholarships totaling approximately $750,000 have been awarded annually.

Application Steps

  • The application process opens at the beginning of the fall semester. Students will receive an email from the Office of Academic Affairs with detailed instructions on how to apply for scholarships and awards.
  • Because application instructions may vary by scholarship and award, students are strongly encouraged to read them carefully.
  • Application deadlines are final; late applications are not accepted.

Selection Process

A committee of faculty members from the departments of Large Animal Clinical Sciences, Small Animal Clinical Sciences, and Biomedical Sciences and Pathobiology and the Office of Academic Affairs allocates and awards student scholarships.
