Our students represent the best and brightest scientific minds. They benefit from a diverse and dynamic faculty with broad expertise, exposure to a wide variety of species on both the urban Philadelphia campus and the rural New Bolton Center in Kennett Square, PA. And our students have access to over 500 laboratories across the University of Pennsylvania, known for its strengths in biomedical research.
Distinguished by their Veterinariae Medicinae Doctoris (VMD) degree, unique among veterinary schools, they are dedicated to both animal and human health for the benefit of society. Armed with the knowledge and hands-on training they receive at Penn Vet, they have the potential to make significant contributions to animal welfare, public health, and public safety on an increasingly international scale.

Founded in 1998 by beloved faculty member and mentor, Dr. Charles Raker, the Opportunity Scholarship Program remains one of the School’s most inspiring initiatives. In addition to the financial benefits of the Program, students benefit tremendously from mentorship for the duration of their scholarship.
It comes as no surprise that support from a caring mentor or sponsor can be key to a student’s success in an era when the demands on students have never been greater – both educationally and financially.
Gifts to the Vet Student Scholarship Fund help alleviate some of the financial debt that our students take on while training to become veterinarians, and allow the School to recruit the best and brightest students without regard for their ability to pay.
