Help Me Be A Vet

Information on becoming a veterinarian:

Information on veterinary colleges can be found at the Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges (AAVMC) website.

College Scholarship Databases:

I search these regularly, as a general rule there are more scholarships available to undergrad students then to grad students.  My advice, don't use just one because I will find different scholarships through different sites.  Also keep in mind there are scholarships available to you that may have nothing to do with your major, so search for anything that interests you.
Before you start your scholarship search, you should fill out your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  This will allow your school to tell you what your Uncle Sam is willing to contribute to your school expenses.  You may be eligible for grants (money you don't have to pay back) and/or loans.  Keep in mind there are two types of loans, subsidized and unsubsidized.  You do not accrue interest on subsidized loans while you are in school.  You do accrue interest on unsubsidized loans while in school.
