Veterinary medicine is a rewarding profession, but like any career in medicine, the cost of school is often a prohibiting factor for those who would otherwise pursue this as a career.
With the costs of veterinary school rising to over $200,000 for in-state and over $275,000 for out-of-state, prospective and current veterinary students are constantly looking for ways to help pay for their education. Student loans put students in debt right after school. Thus, scholarships are the way to go for veterinary students.
Here are a few veterinary scholarships:
Deadline: TBD for 2021

For this scholarship, applicants must submit a short essay, proof of enrollment, letters of reference and a resume detailing their work in animal welfare.

Thus, the foundation offers a multitude of scholarships with varying award amounts and deadlines. Interested students should definitely check out the website and see if they qualify for any of the available scholarships.
