Canadian DVM students are eligible to apply or nominate others for awards listed in the undergraduate calendar. A notice by email will be sent out in late September advising you of the application/nomination process. Awards that do not have financial need as a criteria are presented at the In-Course Awards Ceremony in late November.

Here are some points to keep in mind when looking through the online listing of potential awards, scholarships and bursaries:

  • ACCESS Awards are only available to Canadians with Ontario residency having been assessed as having financial need.
  • Bursaries (financial need awards) listed on the DVM awards website are only available to Canadian students. You will need to fill out an Undergraduate Financial Need Assessment Form located here and return it to Student Financial Services by early October. See the form for the specific deadline.
  • Some scholarships are based on academic achievement and are automatically awarded (i.e. no application is required). Note, if an application is required for an award, it must be submitted on time and to the appropriate department of OVC.
