Student Scholarships and Awards
Due to the generosity of our many donors, the college's Scholarship and Awards Committee 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.
During the 2022-2023 award cycle, the scholarship committee awarded over $1 million.
- The application process opens in the spring each year. 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, and late applications are not accepted. The deadline for the 2024-2025 scholarship cycle is June 15, 2024.
A committee of faculty members from the departments of Large Animal Clinical Sciences, Small Animal Clinical Sciences, Population Health Sciences, and Biomedical Sciences and Pathobiology reviews all applications and then allocates and awards student scholarships.
Please contact the Office of Academic Affairs for more information.
