Pay it Forward Scholarship Program
Scholarships for veterinary students pursuing veterinary medicine careers.
What is the EDUCATE program?
Every year Animal Care PA and PVMA award substantial student scholarships to veterinary students and veterinary technology students. These scholarships help to decrease the financial burden that plagues veterinary students each year. It is not a joke when people say that VMD stands for Very Much in Debt. But it is not just Pennsylvania students, the cost of attending veterinary school is continuing to escalate in other states too. It is exponentially more expensive than it was 25 years ago.
The debt that most students accumulate will follow them for 30 years or more. It will impact every financial decision they make:
- What job should I take?
- What is the pay?
- What are the benefits?
- Can I buy a car?
- Can I buy a house?
- Can I start a family?
It is our goal to help lighten the load by granting scholarships each year to Pennsylvania residents pursuing veterinary careers. Contributions to this fund is indeed an investment in the future of the veterinary profession and a way of supporting someone else with the same passion that you have for helping animals and people.
