    Veterinary Student Scholarships

    Best Vet Scholarships from National Organizations and Colleges
    Students aspiring to be veterinarians are truly committed to the profession and to helping animals. But veterinary programs can be unforgiving when it comes to length of time to earn the degree and cost for funding. Thankfully there are many options for scholarships.
    National Organizations

    We Care Paws-itive Dog Club Scholarship is available to students who are majoring in an animal-related medical field.
    The Thoroughbred Scholarship is available to students who wish to pursue a career in veterinary medicine or agricultural science with an emphasis on equine medicine, racetrack management or equine business management. To be eligible, students must be 25 years of age or younger, have at least a C average in high school and must show a financial need. See the pdf.
    The Saul T. Wilson Jr. Scholarship Program is for undergraduates and graduates enrolled in college full time and in good academic standing. Undergraduates must have completed at least 2 years of a 4 year pre-veterinary medicine or some other biomedical science program. Graduates must have completed no more than 1 year of study in veterinary medicine. Students must agree to work for the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service during school breaks. See the pdf.
    The American Kennel Club sponsors the Veterinary Student Scholarships to full time students enrolled at a veterinary school in the U.S. Students are selected for scholarships based on academic achievement, financial need and activities with purebred dogs or related.
    School Specific

    Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine in Massachusetts offers several scholarship opportunities:
    • George I. Alden Scholarship Fund provides assistance to deserving students studying veterinary medicine.
    • Rosamond "Darby" A. Chambers Scholarship Fund proves scholarships to veterinary medicine students.
    • John F. and Georgia O'Neill Flagg Scholarship Fund for Wildlife Medicine provide assistance to students who are studying veterinary medicine with an emphasis on wildlife medicine.
    Scholarship with Restrictions

    Veterinary Scholarship Trust of New England awards yearly scholarships to New England (Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, or Vermont) students attending any veterinary school in the U.S. as long as they are in good standing.
    U.S. Department of Health and Human Services offers scholarships for full time students who are in financial need and from disadvantaged backgrounds. Students must be enrolled in a degree program for nursing or health professions.
    Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges offers several scholarships:
    • The Harold Wetterberg Foundation awards scholarships to current or past New Jersey residents who are currently enrolled in post-graduate education in the veterinary medicine field.
    • The Secretary's Award for Innovations in Health Promotion and Disease Prevention is for students enrolled in a bachelor's degree program in any health science field. This is a writing competition.
    • The Hill's Public Health Award is for students enrolled in a veterinary program at a college associated with the Federation of Associations of Schools of the Health Professions. This is another writing competition with veterinary medicine as the topic.

    Did anyone out there apply to this scholarship? (Deadline was March 1.) I am just wondering if anyone has heard back. I applied, but I STILL haven't heard anything in the way of results back from them. The most recent thing I heard was several weeks ago telling us that when they knew anything they'd email us. However, their literature also says that they'll notify before the start of the Fall term...which has now become untrue.

    Just thought I'd ask. Thanks!

    Excuse me for bringing back a really old thread, but a lot of the info is probably still helpful...

    Anyway, I was wondering if VAgirl or anyone else ever did hear back about the Saul Wilson scholarship. I want to work for the USDA, but I'm more interested in FSIS than APHIS... However, if they'll pay $10,000 for four years it's a better deal (FSIS will pay back $10,000 for two years according to their website.)

    So, any news?

    I'm in the same boat with you-except for this year! I tried calling the number on the brochure & website, and a message says that the number is no longer in operation. Im curious, how many people recieve this awesome scholarship and when we get notified for anything! Obviously, before fall, but a bit more of a concise time would be convenient! :) COuld you tell me how you were notified of anything please?

    sorry to hear that :( I've just read a lot about the Saul T. Wilson internship online, but I've never actually heard of anyone that was selected. I would like to ask them questions about it because it seems like a good program if it actually exists...I wonder how many people they select for it/ how competitive it is.

    Does anyone one know of any similar internships as this excluding the army stuff and the international version of the Saul T. Wilson internship?
