2nd Annual Electric Dog Fence DIY Scholarship for Veterinary & Animal Science Students

by Gayla on May 18, 2014

Last year, we had the honor of hosting our first Veterinary & Pre-Vet Scholarship. It was a true honor for us to be able to help a needy student in a way that most scholarships normally can’t. Our goal is to provide a deserving student the opportunity to have some financial relief that will allow him or her to better focus in their studies and be able to better serve humanity, in particular our best friends.

Thanks to the feedback of numerous academic institutions, we have made revisions to this year’s scholarship in an effort to be more inclusive and allow for broader participation.
