The ALVMF awards two scholarships each year, the Dr. and Mrs. Aaron Groth, Jr. Award and the Dr. M. K. Heath Memorial Scholarship.
The Dr. and Mrs. A. H. Groth, Jr. Scholarship Award was established in October of 1999 by the Executive Board of the ALVMA. Each year, the ALVMF in conjunction with the ALVMA awards $2,500 scholarship to a student from Auburn University and Tuskegee University that is academically in the upper third of his or her class, and has completed the second year of veterinary school, is an achiever of excellent moral character, is active in the Student Chapter of the American Veterinary Medical Association, and other programs, and has demonstrated leadership qualities, but not necessarily as an officer. Financial need can be considered but is not a qualification.
The Dr. M. K. Heath Memorial Scholarship goes to an Auburn University sophomore, junior, or senior veterinary medicine student based on scholarship and financial need. The baseline for scholastic consideration is a GPA of 3.0 or greater on a 4.0 scale. The financial need portion is based on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid information.
