Each year, the AKC Humane Fund honors five distinguished students pursuing degrees related to advancing responsible pet ownership through the John D. Spurling OBE KCVO Scholarship. We are looking for those students who exemplify excellence with academic coursework, volunteer work, experience and a passion for giving back to their communities. The AKC Humane Fund recognizes the importance of continued education for animal care providers as well as the public and believes that these exceptional students will become the true ambassadors for the human animal bond. Please help us reward the hard work and dedication of such distinguished individuals by sharing information about the John D. Spurling scholarship opportunity. The application period for 2015 will be open from March 1st to July 1st.
