The Pawsible Puppy Raiser Academic Scholarship provides $2,500 to five student volunteer puppy raisers twice a year. The purpose of the scholarship funds is to alleviate some of the financial stress that student puppy raisers face by putting $2,500 towards their academic expenses. The scholarship can be used for tuition and fees, books, and supplies. One of these scholarships will be reserved for a volunteer puppy raiser who identifies as a member of a racial or ethnic minority. Applicants who are considered for this reserved scholarship will be still evaluated as potential recipients for the other four scholarships.
Applicants must be a volunteer puppy raiser with financial responsibility for a future assistance dog for a non-profit organization for at least one month during the Spring term (Jan-May), must be a U.S. citizen or U.S. permanent resident, be enrolled at least part-time in an accredited 2-year or 4-year institution of higher education that grants an Associate of Arts, Bachelor's, Master's, or Doctoral degree, or an accredited vocational school that grants a certificate of completion and fill out the whole application to the best of your knowledge and understand that if sections are left incomplete your application may not be considered.
