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.

I would not be able to follow my life-long dreams and attend veterinary school without the financial support from our generous donors. I promise to improve my community and the world, jus like [my scholarship supporters] have before me!

Ways You Can Help

  • Name a term scholarship through the Cummings Veterinary Fund Scholars Program.
  • Establish a new endowed scholarship that supports students in perpetuity.
  • Provide financial aid for future veterinary students by naming Cummings School as a beneficiary of your estate.
  • Make a gift of any amount to support current-use financial aid.

I'm realizing a lifetime dream of helping animals thanks to scholarships. I am so appreciative of that support, and hope to make my supporters proud when I call myself a veterinarian!
