Shaw-Worth Memorial Scholarship

The Shaw-Worth Memorial Scholarship honors New England high school seniors who demonstrate a humane ethic. Each award is given as payment to the college, university, or specialized training academy at which the recipient will be matriculating in fall of the upcoming academic year. Students from New England public, private, parochial and vocational schools are eligible. 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; and 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.For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
