Shaw Worth Scholarship Award

Each year, the Shaw-Worth Memorial Scholarship is awarded to a New England high school senior who has made a meaningful contribution to animal protection over a significant period of time. Actions meriting the award may include long-term, direct work on behalf of animals; inspiring leadership in animal protection organizations; papers, speeches, or presentations on humane topics; or heroic rescues of animals in danger.


A humane attitude, an understanding of humane ethics, and past performance on behalf of animals are essential. A passive liking for animals or the mere desire to enter an animal care field does not justify the award nor does animal conservation for the purpose of maintaining hunting stocks.

High scholastic standing is not a requisite for this scholarship; please do not include academic transcripts in the application. Financial need is also not a consideration. There is no standardized application form to complete.

Applications should be written in a letter or essay format and should include a narrative of the student's achievements in animal protection, as well as a discussion of his or her attitude toward animals. Documentation of the activities cited, recommendations from at least three people, and a description of future plans for humane work are required. Supporting letters from teachers, mentors, supervisors, peers and other observers are also helpful. In addition, applications should include the student's home address and phone number.

Don't Go, There's More!!
