Financial Aid

Our students rely on members of the Cummings School community, like you, more than ever before to support them in completing their journey into veterinary medicine—and to a career of compassionate care.

Help our students realize their dreams by making a gift to financial aid. Your generosity goes a long way in helping our students, as well as the countless animals and people that will be touched by each scholarship recipient.
