Scholarships and bursaries
Each year, WCVM's veterinary students and graduate students have access to more than $360,000 in financial assistance through numerous scholarships and bursaries that are supported by the University of Saskatchewan, provincial governments, organizations, businesses and individuals.
WCVM annually presents its scholarships and bursaries during the college's fall awards program and spring graduation banquet. These special events give WCVM supporters the opportunity to meet the talented men and women who benefit from their awards. Plus, it's the ideal time for students to meet their benefactors and personally thank them for supporting their dreams.
Adopt a journal or book
Veterinary professionals from the four western provinces have generously supported the WCVM Library's Adopt a Journal or Book program since 1999. The campaign has allowed the library to maintain relevant journals and books in the library's collection.
As more veterinary journals change from print to electronic format, the WCVM Library's annual fundraising campaign has broadened its focus from print journals to include materials such as newly published reference books, new editions of textbooks, and other published works.
Established in 2003, the Dean's Fund supports a broad range of activities and programs at the veterinary college. If a worthwhile project needs financial assistance but doesn't meet the specific criteria of other college funds, the Dean's Fund can be used as a potential source of vital support.
The Dean's Fund offers a flexible option to donors who wish to provide a general contribution to the college without limiting the scope of their gift to one program, one species or one group. With generous assistance from the college's donors, this fund helps to strengthen and support the priorities of the veterinary college.
Undergraduate Education Enhancement Fund
The WCVM Undergraduate Education Enhancement Fund supports activities that will enhance learning opportunities available to veterinary students at the WCVM. Contributions support a variety of undergraduate educational activities including:
- student externships
- clinical rotations
- clinical experiences
- student bursaries
- other initiatives that contribute to veterinary students' educational experience
