New Jersey Veterinary Foundation

Since 1975, the New Jersey Veterinary Foundation has awarded over one million dollars in scholarship grants, interest-free loans and forgivable loans to New Jersey veterinary students.

The NJVF Board of Trustees voted to replace the Veterinary Student Loan Program with Veterinary Education Grants beginning in the 2014-2015 school year. New Jersey residents are eligible to apply after completing their first year of veterinary school. Grants are awarded based on financial need and academic achievement. Upon receiving verification of enrollment, NJVF Education Grants will be paid directly to veterinary schools in two parts; one installment in August and one installment in December.

NJVF Student Loans that were issued before 2014 are still required to be paid off following the schedule outlined in the signed promissory note. Please call or e-mail the New Jersey Veterinary Foundation at (908) 281-0918, with questions.

The NJVF Scholarship Program is funded solely by contributions, a significant portion of which are generated by New Jersey veterinarians.
