The American Veterinary Medical Foundation (AVMF) is extremely proud to offer the Auxiliary to the AVMA Legacy Endowed Scholarship which was created in recognition of the AVMFs long standing relationship with the Auxiliary to the AVMA, a non-profit organization of veterinarians, associates, family and friends of the veterinary profession. Shortly after World War II, the Auxiliary started a student loan fund to assist with the hardships facing veterinary families due to injury or death from the war. In 2013 the Auxiliary transferred $2,000,000 to the AVMF to establish this scholarship program. Annual proceeds from the endowment will support veterinary student scholarships for many years to come.
$1,000 scholarships will be awarded to students meeting the eligibility criteria listed below at each of the AVMA accredited veterinary colleges in the United States, the Atlantic Veterinary College in Canada and St. George's University and Ross University in the Caribbean, the University of Glasgow and Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies - The University of Edinburgh in Scotland, and the Royal Veterinary College – University of London in England.
