If you've been waiting for scholarship money to be available for the professional Dog Trainer Program through Karen Pryor Academy, then here's some great news!
Sixteen $500 "Klinghammer" scholarships have been announced for Karen Pryor Academy Dog Trainer Program. The scholarships, made possible by an anonymous donor, honor the work of Erich Klinghammer, a field biologist who has made enormous contributions to our understanding of the behavior of wolves, dogs, and other canids. The scholarships will make the Dog Trainer Program's educational benefits more accessible to a greater numbers of students in the shortest period of time.
For the 2008 calendar year, there are sixteen $500 scholarships available for Dog Trainer Programs commencing between March 1, 2008 and December 31, 2008. Students who apply to the program after February 1, 2008 are eligible for these awards. Scholarships will be awarded to individuals accepted into the Academy's Dog Trainer Program on a first come, first serve basis, although the Academy reserves the right to limit awards in a particular location in order to help create geographic diversity. Applicants will be notified of scholarship awards along with their acceptance to the Academy.
Note that students receiving other sources of financial aid are not eligible for these scholarships. Students for the International program are also not eligible at this time.
