Scholarship Programs

College of Veterinary Medicine Scholarships

Scholarships are available to veterinary medical students from various sources.  Each year the College of Veterinary Medicine provides approximately $350,000-$450,000 of awards and scholarships to students from endowments given to and managed by the vet school.

For incoming first year students, there are several scholarships available. First-year students should submit a FAFSA by April 15 to be reviewed for financial-need based awards.

For returning students (VM2, VM3, and VM4), the FAFSA should be completed by January 1 each year to be reviewed for financial-need based awards.  Scholarship applications will be emailed to students directly.
