There is a scholarship (or many scholarships) out there for everyone. Every student has some skill, interest, experience, or characteristic that may make them an attractive candidate for one scholarship or another. And while we often refer to scholarships as “free money,” scholarships don’t actually come for free. It takes work to thoughtfully consider your strengths and research the scholarships that might be most appropriate for you. While the effort that goes into finding and winning scholarships may be akin to a part-time job, we at College Coach want to make your job a little easier. This on-going scholarship series highlights a new scholarship each week. Check out the below, along with the other posts in the series, and you may discover a funding resource that will make covering that college bill a little (or a lot!) easier.
In honor of National Reptile Awareness Day (10/21), we wanted to share this scholarship opportunity with all of the snake-, turtle-, and lizard-lovers out there. Oxbow Animal Health recognizes the needs for highly trained professionals in the field of animal health, and this particular scholarship recognizes students with a special interest in exotic animal medicine.
