  • Scholarship Description
  • The Animal Welfare Institute (AWI) seeks to improve the treatment of animals everywhere—in the laboratory, on the farm, in commerce, at home, and in the wild. Over the seven decades that AWI has been advocating for animals, much progress has been made. Yet we are hoping to build on our accomplishments by ensuring that future generations continue to improve the lives of animals through the Animal Welfare Institute Scholarship fund. We want to invest in future leaders working to improve animal welfare.

    The Animal Welfare Institute Scholarship is open to seniors in high school who have demonstrated a commitment to animal welfare through volunteer work and/or advocacy and intend to pursue a career that will ultimately reduce animal suffering. Students who are seniors in high school during the application window for this year’s application process will be considered, and must attend a high school in the United Stated. Applicants will be required to obtain two letters of recommendation from individuals (not family members) who can speak to the applicant’s education record and commitment to animal welfare. If selected as a finalist, the applicant will be required to supply confirmation of acceptance to a college or university prior to scholarship distribution.

Hello, I’m applying for this scholarship because I wish to become a veterinarian. My ultimate goal is to help as many animals as I can during my career and give a voice to those that are suffering due to ignorance on behalf of the owner. Specifically Equines who are often forgotten about or left out in welfare studies.

Hi there. My name is Ruby Frank and I am interested in applying for this scholarship. I am going to be entering the field of wildlife ecology with a concentration on captive wildlife. I believe that I can help end animal suffering because with my degree, I will be able to provide better enrichment opportunities for animals in captivity, whether that be at a shelter, zoo, or refuge. I also will be able to use this degree to back myself up when I am out advocating for animals. My main goal in life is to give a voice to those who cannot speak.
