Academy Scholarships

The primary reason for relinquishment of dogs to shelters and rescues is their behavior. Each year the Academy for Dog Trainers offers a limited number of partial scholarships to aspiring trainers who are actively working in animal sheltering and rescue. The Academy looks for applicants who will use their education to keep shelter/rescue dogs in adoptive homes, to prepare dogs to become integrated with new families, and to help owners train, manage, and modify behavior using non-aversive, evidence-based practices.

The scholarship application process is open once a year between June 1 and 15. Please return to this site for more information as that time approaches. Meanwhile, for more information about the application process, please view our information sheet here.
