The American Veterinary Medical Foundation awards scholarships to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd year students attending accredited colleges of veterinary medicine in the United States. Students are encouraged to consider both traditional and non-traditional careers as they move forward in their education to understand the many options that the veterinary profession offers.
In addition to the AVMF scholarships, one applicant will be selected to receive a $2,500 scholarship from the Winn Feline Foundation. This award will be given to a 3rd or 4th year veterinary student who demonstrates a keen interest in cats. Emphasis is placed on those students who are involved in or volunteer for activities that benefit the health and welfare of cats, such as research, shelter work, cat clubs, and other community service programs. GPA and financial need are also considered for this special scholarship.
