Debt following graduation often includes not only the student's four years in veterinary school, but previous educational loans for their undergraduate or graduate studies. Scholarships help students limit their total debt. In addition, academic excellence is rewarded with available scholarship funds and can help the college recruit top students. In addition to the CVM General Scholarship Fund, there are several alumni Class Scholarship Endowments: Classes of 1979, 1980, 1981, 1982 and 1985 that can receive additional gifts.
