Scholarships and Fellowships

Invest in the future of veterinary medicine! Gifts from alumni and friends help us advance veterinary medicine in Minnesota and the world, and continuing generosity provides numerous opportunities for students.

Fellowships and scholarships continue to provide important support for our students in today’s challenging economic climate. Most importantly they encourage students to pursue their passion of serving animals, people, and society and reach their most cherished goal.

Scholarships at the College of Veterinary Medicine

students scholarshipsScholarships strengthen our academic community because they recruit talented new students from diverse backgrounds to Minnesota, benefiting us all. The College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) offers scholarships to students throughout the course of their veterinary education. CVM scholarships recognize students for achievements such as:

  • Academic excellence 
  • Clinical proficiency 
  • Leadership and community service
  • Business aptitude

Scholarships can support students on a specific academic track, for example students working toward a DVM/MPH combined degree or students studying food animal medicine. You can support veterinary students by creating a scholarship, donating to an existing scholarship, or by making a donation to an education program.

CVM graduate studentsRecruiting top graduate students makes it possible for the University to conduct world-class research. The University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine is one of only 28 Colleges of Veterinary Medicine in the United States to offer master’s and doctoral degrees. CVM Graduate Students work in a collaborative research environment and have the opportunity to draw on the expertise of basic researchers as well as the applied research skills of board certified clinicians as part of an interdisciplinary research team.

Creating or supporting an endowed fellowship allows you to have a significant impact in an area that is particularly meaningful to you. Additionally, Fellowships are a great way to support both students and research at CVM.
