Oklahoma Offers Large Animal Vet Incentive Program

Large animal veterinarians can get some financial assistance with their school loans. The Oklahoma State University Center for Veterinary Health Sciences and the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry have announced the initial offering of the Large Animal Veterinarian Incentive educational loan repayment program. Up to two recipients will be selected for the program. A veterinarian could receive up to $25,000 annually for a maximum of four years.

To be eligible for the program a large animal veterinarian must be employed in a full-time position in any community in Oklahoma with a population not to exceed 25,000 as determined by the most recent Federal census.

Funding for years beyond the first year will depend on legislative action for each of those years. The complete governing statute can be found by clicking here.

Successful recipients will be notified by mid-February, 2015. Funding will be disbursed directly to lenders who are handling applicants' qualifying educational loans.

For a application contact OSU Professor and Associate Dean for Academic Affairs Chris Ross, DVM, PhD at chris.ross@okstate.edu. The deadline for application is January 1, 2015. Send completed applications to Chris Ross by email or to the following mailing address.
