Pembroke Welsh Corgi Club of America scholarship
The Pembroke Welsh Corgi Club of America’s Scholarship Program is established to recognize young people that are actively involved in the sport of dogs, with emphasis on Pembroke Welsh Corgis. Our goal is to support and reward those worthy individuals that have a dedication to the breed at a number of levels, demonstrated good sportsmanship and have educational aspirations.
The PWCCA will award up to $2,000 to one or more qualified students currently enrolled or who plan to be enrolled in an institute of higher education. This includes high school seniors, high school graduates, and those already enrolled in higher education. This scholarship is open to all U.S citizens. Applicants are not required to be a member of the PWCCA or a Pembroke Welsh Corgi regional club.
PWCCA Scholarship Applications are available year round from the committee chair. Any application postmarked after June 1st will not be eligible for consideration.
