  About the College


Veterinary Medicine Attracts the Best and Brightest Students.

Decreasing State Aid Leaves Many of These Students With Enormous Amounts of Debt at Graduation.

Many veterinary medical students share the same dream of their predecessors of the last 50 years, to go home to their communities and grow their own medical practices.

While earning a veterinary medical career has never been easy, today’s students face a time when state aid is at historically low levels.

Nationally, today's student graduates with an average of $80,000 in debt, making it hard to buy into an existing practice or to start up a new operation.

The MU College of Veterinary Medicine, through its friends and supporters, have established several scholarship programs to lessen this financial burden on students. More contributions will help more students, however, which is why the college has established a $2 million scholarship campaign goal.
