VetStrategy Diversity Bursary for Veterinary Students

We believe in a level playing field for all in the veterinary industry, which is why we are investing in a bursary program supporting BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Colour) students on their journey to become veterinarians. Our bursary program is part of our wider commitment to supporting diversity across the veterinary profession and within our business.

Here's what you need to know.


Up to ten (10) bursaries will be available for veterinary students. Bursaries are valued at $5,000 CAD, for one academic year. All applicants will have the opportunity to work with members of VetStrategy’s Talent Acquisition team on placement and employment opportunities.

We are also considering virtual networking and learning opportunities during the school year.

  • Are a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada.
  • Self-identify as a being part of the BIPOC community.
