Used to help secure extraordinary students who will be important to Penn Vet and the Veterinary profession. Successful applicants illustrate great potential in veterinary school, have a plan for the future that has begun to be acted upon and look globally in practicing veterinary medicine. While grades and test scores may be important, they are not the deciding factor in the selection process.
A $20,000.00 scholarship ($5,000 per academic year) awarded to first-year students. The award recipients are selected based on academic merit and interests, extra-curricular activities and financial need. Opportunity Scholarships foster scholarship support and mentoring opportunities by pairing a mentor with a single student for their four year veterinary career.
Annual scholarships made possible by the generous donations of the Penn Vet community awarded to continuing students. The frequency and number of scholarships awarded depend upon the available funding, however the current minimum award amount of Penn Vet Scholarships is $5,000.00.
