Since 2016, EveryCat Health Foundation (EveryCat) and the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) have partnered annually to provide two scholarships for 3rd or 4th-year veterinary students enrolled in an accredited veterinary college or school in the United States or Canada. The two $2,500 awards are based upon academic achievement, financial need, leadership, and dedication to and excellence in the study of feline medicine, health, and welfare. One $2,500 scholarship is awarded to a veterinary student with a feline practice interest and the second $2,500 scholarship to a veterinary student with a clinical scientific research interest. Students may apply once annually.

In addition to a short application form, interested students are required to answer two essay questions, explaining his/her specific interest and background in feline health and welfare, and to describe plans for future participation in feline medicine. All applications are reviewed, selected, and approved by the AAFP and EveryCat.
