Support West Virginia Buckeye Veterinarians

Although our giving page is no longer active, you can still donate. If you would like to provide any additional support to our project, please do so here. 


Thank you for your interest in supporting the Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine West Virginia Student Scholarship Fund.

This scholarship was established by West Virginia alumni and friends to help offset the high out-of-state tuition costs incoming West Virginian veterinary students face while attending The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine. West Virginia students interested in attending Ohio State must pay out-of-state tuition totaling $72,000 for their first year compared to $32,000 for in-state tuition.

Our goal is to reach $25,000 by the end of February to offer scholarships to the some of the best and brightest prospective students from West Virginia for next year’s incoming class. Your support will help make their dream of earning a veterinary degree from Ohio State come true like many of the West Virginia Buckeyes who have come before them.

Any gift, no matter the size, will truly make a difference. A generous donor has agreed to match the first $5,000 during this campaign.

Join us as we lead the charge in providing an affordable veterinary education to prospective students from West Virginia here at Ohio State!

Contract years

Starting in 1953, a contract program existed between the state of West Virginia and the Ohio State College of Veterinary Medicine that reserved about 4 or 5 seats in each year’s class for West Virginia students and allowed them to pay in-state tuition for their first year of veterinary school. However, contract program ended in 2008.


Contract Students

During the years of the in-state tuition contract, just over 250 West Virginian students were able to receive their veterinary degree from The Ohio State University.


Counties in WV without a vet

The lack of available seats for West Virginia residents wishing to pursue a veterinary medicine degree has led to a lack of veterinarians practicing in West Virginia. There are currently 5 counties in the state without a practicing veterinarian. Give $100 for each county in West Virginia without a practicing veterinarian.


Join your fellow alumni

Many West Virginia veterinary alumni have pledged $1,000 a year for this scholarship. Join them at this level.


Cost of books/medical supplies

At this level, you can support a veterinary student from West Virginia's books and veterinary supplies necessary for their education for one year.
