Shaw - Worth Memorial Scholarship


Scholarship Value: $2,500
Awards Available: 1

Applications are now being accepted for the 2016 Shaw-Worth Memorial Scholarship. Since 1965, the award has been assisting students who, in the course of working in the service of animals, demonstrate a deep respect for animals and people. 


Administered by The HSUS, the award provides $2,500 in tuition assistance, payable to the college or university at which the recipient will be matriculating in 2016. 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.

Applications may be submitted by any Class of 2016 high school senior in New England and must be postmarked by March 25, 2016. There is no standardized application form to complete. Applications should be written in letter form and include:

A) Student name and school

B) Student home address and phone number

C) A narrative of the studentís achievements in animal protection

D) A discussion of his or her attitude toward animals

E) A description of activities done to promote animal protection

F) Plans for future humane/animal protection work (in either professional or volunteer capacity)
