FVMA Scholarship Fund

The FVMA Foundation maintains a scholarship fund to aid the educational development of Florida veterinary medical students and veterinary technician students.

Student scholarships are an important part of the FVMA Foundation’s program to support the advancement of veterinary medicine in Florida.  The Foundation awards more than $15,000 in veterinary medical student and veterinary technician student scholarships annually.

Since 2001, the FVMA has awarded six students of the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine each year.  The students receive checks of $1,500 and award plaques in honor of a dedicated veterinarian who is named “Champion of Veterinary Medicine” for his or her contributions to advance the veterinary profession.

The veterinary “Champions” are placed on FVMA’s honor roll.  In 2001, which was the 25th anniversary of the CVM, the first group of scholarships was given in honor of all FVMA members who worked hard in the mid-1960s to create the College of Veterinary Medicine.
