How to get money for medical, dental, or veterinary school

You’ve worked long and hard, and now you’ve been accepted to medical, dental or veterinary. Well done! Now that you’re about to enter the next chapter of your studies, there are still big costs to consider. How are you going to pay for it all? While it’s a big cost, investing in your education is important. So take the time to look at your options.

Get the government to pay

You may be lucky enough to be studying in a province that awards scholarships, or grants for students. It will require some digging, but could give you the boost you need in your funding.

Search for a scholarship

If you do some research, and apply well in advance, many medical, dental or veterinary schools offer scholarships. Look into your options as early as possible to make sure you hit any application deadlines.
