Auxiliary Scholarship Information

The American Veterinary Medical Foundation (AVMF) is extremely proud to offer the Auxiliary to the AVMA Legacy Endowed Scholarship Program which was created in recognition of the AVMF’s long standing relationship with the Auxiliary to the AVMA. 

A key strategic initiative of the AVMF is STUDENT ENCHANCEMENT.  We have a long, successful history of providing financial support to veterinary students through our scholarship programs. 

The Auxiliary to the AVMA is a non-profit organization of family, veterinarians, associates and friends of the veterinary profession whose purpose is to promote the science and art of veterinary medicine through communications, education and support of those associated with the 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.  Despite the tough economic times of that era the Auxiliary was successful in raising money to assist practitioners.  The Auxiliary’s support of the veterinary profession has continued uninterrupted since that time.

In 2013 the Auxiliary transferred $2,000,000 to the AVMF to establish The Auxiliary to the AVMA Legacy Endowed Scholarship Program.  Annual proceeds from the endowment will support veterinary student scholarships for many years to come.  During the 2017 - 2018 academic year $1,000 scholarships will be awarded to students 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.
