San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 11, 2012
P.L.A.Y. (Pet Lifestyle and You) is pleased to announce its new student scholarship for the 2012-2013 school year! The scholarship will reward one college-bound young person who has shown exemplary dedication to animal welfare with a $1000 grant. The ideal student will be a passionate animal lover whose life and perceptions have been enriched by involvement with animal advocacy.
This fall, P.L.A.Y. will accept submissions in the form of written essays detailing the student’s involvement with volunteer and other animal-focused charity endeavors. The company will evaluate candidates based on how well they represent P.L.A.Y.’s core values, which include animal safety and welfare, eco-friendly awareness, and support of shelters and other non-profit animal advocates.
“We believe that students should be encouraged to give back as often as possible,” said P.L.A.Y. co-founder, Deborah Feng. “Today’s extraordinary generation of young people has the ability to ignite change across a wide spectrum of causes; animal welfare being the issue closest to our hearts at P.L.A.Y. We’d like to take this opportunity to reward scholars who have contributed selflessly to such an important mission.”
