Health Professions Scholarship Program
The Army offers one of the most generous and comprehensive scholarships in the health care field. It's called the F. Edward Hebert Armed Forces Health Professions Scholarship Program, HPSP for short. If you qualify, you could earn a full-tuition scholarship, plus a monthly allowance through the HPSP.
Direct Commissioning is offered to all graduates of American Veterinary Medical Association accredited schools of veterinary medicine in the United States. You must be a U.S. citizen to be commissioned. The maximum age is 42 at time of accession.
Students commissioned through the Reserve Officer Training Corps (R.O.T.C) may apply for an Educational Delay to attend veterinary school. Applications should be made through the local R.O.T.C. office.
