Scholarships

The College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Georgia provides many opportunities for students to receive scholarships throughout their four years of veterinary medical education.

Each academic year, enrolled DVM students will be strongly encouraged to complete the CVM scholarship application, which will allow them to be considered for the bulk of the scholarship monies available.

Students MUST complete this form to qualify for all of our CVM internal scholarships. Current students will receive information on how to apply via email. The College has a Scholarships and Awards Committee that determines the recipients of our various scholarships based on the criteria set forth by the scholarship donor. Most of our internal UGA-CVM scholarships are awarded in April at our annual Honors and Awards Banquet. This gives students a chance to meet the donors who make these scholarships possible and thank them for their support.

In addition, there are several external scholarships available throughout the academic year. These are posted on this website, in addition to students being notified by email. Criteria set forth by the donors, information about each scholarship, and instructions regarding how to apply are described at this site. The deadlines of these specific scholarships vary, so it is up to the student to adhere to the deadline. These are scholarships that are sponsored by outside groups or organizations (the recipients are not chosen by the Scholarships and Awards Committee).

Students are strongly encouraged to apply for all scholarships in which they meet the minimum requirements. Some of these scholarships can drastically reduce your debt load.
