Humane Society Announces Scholarship Program

May 1, 2007 – The Humane Society of St. Thomas has announced its scholarship program for 2007. In its fourth year, the scholarship program has assisted six St. Thomas students to pursue their education in animal-related fields.
Application forms for this year's grants can be downloaded from the Humane Society's Web site, www.hsstt.com, or obtained by contacting them at 775-0599. Application packages will also be provided to all public and private high schools, as well as the University of the Virgin Islands.
Candidates for the scholarships must complete the application form; attach copies of their grades from the last three semesters; attach three letters of recommendation; and provide proof of volunteer work with an organization promoting animal welfare. In addition, each candidate must provide an essay on the "human-animal bond."
Scholarship applications must be received by no later than June 1, and successful candidates will be notified by June 8. Scholarship funds will be paid directly to the recipient's college or university.
For the first three years of its existence the scholarship program was funded by Clearwater Consulting Concepts LLP. For 2007, the program is being funded by an anonymous benefactor.
For further information on the scholarship program or the Humane Society's other programs for the good of the community, contact Executive Director Leslie Fisher or Board President Joe Aubain.
