We're partnering with EveryCat Health Foundation to award two scholarships for 3rd- or 4th-year veterinary students (Classes of 2023 and 2024) enrolled in accredited veterinary colleges or schools in the United States or Canada. The two $2,500 awards are based on academic achievement, financial need, leadership, and dedication to excellence in the study of feline medicine, health, and wellbeing.
To apply for the scholarships, students must submit a short application. Applicants will be required to answer two essay questions that describe their specific interests and background in feline health and wellbeing, as well as their goals in pursuing feline medicine or clinical scientific research. A Scholarship Task Force comprised of volunteers from EveryCat Health Foundation and the AAFP will review the applications and select and approve the scholarship winners. The deadline to apply for a scholarship is March 17, 2023.

Veterinary Education Tools
The AVMA has launched My Veterinary Life which provides valuable resources which start from your time in veterinary school to help you succeed with tools and resources to simplify and improve your everyday life.
The interactive VIN Foundation Cost of Education Map compares the tuition and total cost of attendance (tuition plus estimates of living expenses) among U.S. and Caribbean veterinary schools derived from data on school websites supplemented by input from the students attending the schools. Regional veterinary salary ranges are as reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Details provided for each U.S. and Caribbean veterinary school include in-state tuition, out-of-state tuition, cost of living, NAVLE pass rate, and changes in tuition over the past decade.
The Student Loan Repayment Simulator is a tool that can be used to illustrate the potential impacts of life choices based upon your veterinary school loans. Please note that this tool is simply a simulator and not a financial advisor or calculator.
The "I Want to Be a Veterinarian" application discusses: what veterinarians do, is veterinary medicine the right choice, how long you have to go to school, and much more.
