Scholarships Celebrate 10th Anniversary of School of Veterinary Medicine

As St. George’s University School of Veterinary Medicine approaches its tenth year, the School has introduced the “Decade of Excellence” Scholarship Program. This program is designed to assist incoming students in the January 2009 class by awarding a number of partial scholarships.

Students at universities worldwide are encountering considerable difficulty obtaining loans for educational programs, an unfortunate ripple effect from the current uncertainty of the global economy.  It has long been the University’s mission to provide superior educational opportunities to any and all qualifying students.   St. George’s University School of Veterinary Medicine is eager to assist those students who are facing difficulty acquiring the funds to further their education and reach their goals of practicing veterinary medicine.

The University believes that an investment in the future of each individual student is, in turn, an investment in the well-being and development of communities throughout the world.  Since its establishment in 1999, the School of Veterinary Medicine has been dedicated to providing a broad range of educational and professional training opportunities preparing and inspiring students to become leaders in the field of veterinary medicine and curtailing the current shortage of veterinarians worldwide.

In the ten years since its inception, St. George’s University School of Veterinary Medicine has expanded to include state-of-the-art laboratories, a Small Animal Hospital, unparalleled faculty and visiting professors from veterinary medical schools throughout the United States, United Kingdom and Canada, and superior enhancement programs.  The SGUSVM has emerged as a leader in the field of veterinary medical education.

All incoming students interested in applying for the “Decade of Excellence” Scholarship should contact the Office of Enrolment Planning for more information.
