Guide to Vet Tech Scholarships (2021-2022)

According to EducationData, 43.2 million student borrowers are in debt by an average of $39,351 each. The student loan debt is $1.57 trillion in the United States, and student loans are now the second-largest source of consumer debt in America, behind mortgages.

Even though student loans were created to increase social mobility, they may do the opposite and impede a young graduate’s ability to achieve financial success. Buying a car, saving for retirement, getting a mortgage, even starting a family—these are things that get postponed while graduates repay their student loans.

A two-year program for veterinary technician training can cost up to $30,000, and a four-year bachelor’s program in veterinary technology can cost more than $60,000. While this may seem low compared to other fields, it includes a significant portion of a veterinary technician’s median salary.

The market for vet techs is growing much faster than the national average at 16 percent, indicative of a great employment outlook for students. These professionals are paid a median salary of $36,260 a year, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS 2021). Aspiring vet techs can look for resources to mitigate a portion of their student debt.

Scholarships are, most simply put, free money. Students pay them back figuratively, with their service to society—at no interest, and without obligation. While good scholarships can be hard to find and win, they do exist, specifically for motivated individuals who need them most.

In the vet tech world, scholarship requirements often include some combination of proof of enrollment at an accredited veterinary technology program, letters of reference, a copy of school transcripts, and, most critically, a personal essay or academic paper on a given topic. The awards can range between $500 and $1,500.

VetTechColleges.com has compiled a list of the top vet tech scholarships of 2021-2022, organized into four categories: general, state-specific, school-specific, and demographic. Please note that while some of the deadlines may have passed, scholarships are typically available annually at around the same time.
