Still time to apply for scholarships available for animal-related education

If you’re graduating from a Carbon County high school in 2018 or have already graduated and live in Carbon County AND you’d like to work with companion or service animals, Beartooth Humane Alliance (BHA) has a scholarship opportunity for you.

 The BHA Scholarship Fund will annually make an award of up to $1,000 to an individual pursuing a career that will better the lives of companion and/or service animals. Examples are veterinary medicine, working with animals in humanitarian efforts such as search and rescue, managing animal shelters and animal welfare programs, working with military or police dogs, and training service animals for people with disabilities.

 You are eligible to apply for a BHA scholarship if (1) you will graduate from a Carbon County high school in 2018 or have already graduated high school and live in Carbon County (2) you will attend a regionally or nationally accredited U.S. post-secondary educational institution, and (3) your study program will prepare you for a career that promotes good lives for companion and/or service animals, like the career examples listed above. 

 To apply please visit the administrator or counselor who manages scholarships at your high school and ask for the BHA Scholarship Fund application package OR visit to print an application. Complete the application, add the attachments requested, and either submit your completed package to the administrator or counselor if you are a 2016 graduate or mail the package to BHA, P.O. Box 2333, Red Lodge, MT 59068 no later than April 30, 2018.

 The BHA Scholarship is funded by donor-restricted contributions not available for any other BHA programs. Donations to BHA for its other programs will not be used for the scholarship. 

 “We’re dedicated to improving the quality of life for companion animals. We also see first-hand how animals can better the lives of people.” said Diane Zook, BHA Executive Director. “We’re pleased to invest in the education of individuals who want to pursue careers in these fields.”

 If you have questions about the BHA Scholarship, please check with the counselor or administrator who manages scholarships at your high school, or contact BHA at
