Supporting Scholarships

Your generosity matters to the next generation of veterinarians

Veterinarians serve a critical role in our world. Our alumni don’t just keep animals healthy and animal owners happy. They also keep humans healthy through the research they conduct and the public health and environmental policies they impact.

Our world is a better place thanks to our alumni.

But attending veterinary school today is expensive. Gifts made to the College of Veterinary Medicine scholarship funds provide critical funding to students who might not otherwise be able to afford to attend veterinary school. Your scholarship donations ensure that we can continue to attract the best and brightest to attend the UofI College of Veterinary Medicine.

If you are looking for a meaningful way to show your support of the College of Veterinary Medicine, please consider helping the next generation of veterinarians by making a gift to an existing scholarship fund. If you are looking for a way to make a long-term impact and would like to start a new scholarship fund, please contact our office.
