Philanthropy has an important role in making outstanding veterinary education financially accessible. In addition to attracting bright, curious, and engaged students, we have an obligation to train a more diverse student body. Our definition of diversity encompasses traditional measures, including ethnicity, gender, geography, and socioeconomic background, and also includes broader career paths for more diverse professional options through our dual degree programs that are bringing veterinary medicine to the forefront of global, environmental, and human health.
Veterinary Student Scholarships
Since 1884, we have graduated more than 7,000 men and women. Our graduates have gone on to private or public practice, research, public health and more. Known for their expertise, inquisitiveness and compassion, Penn Vet alumni care deeply about animals and their link between human and animal health.
In 2017 nearly half of Penn Vet students received scholarships or grants. To solidify our commitment to financially supporting the most diverse, passionate and talented students we need to continue to strengthen our foundation of support.
Your gift will help us attract and keep the most promising students and guarantee access and opportunity at a time when all veterinary students face the highest debt-to-income ratio of any health-profession.
