Scholarships (OUR)-smOur students are extraordinary scientists who could have easily pursued graduate degrees in nearly any field.  It is their love of animals that brings them here.  They study intensively for four years and pass rigorous exams and boards to become veterinarians.  Consider investing in our students and their future through a gift of scholarship.

If you would like to create a scholarship in your name or to honor a faculty member or loved-one, please contact a member of our advancement team at (352) 294-4256.
