Vets Now Ethnic Diversity Nursing Scholarship open for applications

Applications are now open for the Vets Now Ethnic Diversity Nursing Scholarship.

The scholarship programme is part of their wider commitment to supporting ethnic diversity across the veterinary profession. Successful candidates will be awarded an annual grant of £2,500 for the duration of their course, mentoring from the Vets Now ethnic diversity scholarship board members and a support network to help them through their studies. 

In order to apply for the scholarship, you must be a UK or EU citizen who self-identifies as being from an ethnic minority, and applying to enter one of the UK or ROI nursing colleges on a course accredited with the RCVS as a ‘licence to practice’ in veterinary nursing for this years’ intake.

Your family’s financial background will be considered during the application process, and you will be asked to submit proof of this as assessed by Student Finance, with priority given to students from lower-income families.

All applications must be completed and received in full by 31st May 2024.
