2017 Scholships

The following scholarships are available for current DVM students at Oregon State University. Each January all DVM students will have the opportunity to answer a Qualtrics survey distributed by email. The results of the Qualtrics survey are shared with the Honors, Awards, and Scholarships Committee. That committee meets in April of each year and determines the awards. Other veterinary scholarships are available, but each requires a separate application.
If you have any questions, please contact Beth Chamblin at beth.chamblin@oregonstate.edu
