Fee Reimbursement Program
A limited number of fee reimbursements are provided to qualified applicants on a first-come, first-served basis. Each reimbursement covers only the initial application fee of $220, so if you wish to apply to additional programs, you are responsible for the remaining balance. If you received a reimbursement during a previous cycle, you may also apply for another in the next cycle.
For more information, please see the AAVMC Fee Reimbursement site.
