The Faith Scholarship

The Faith Scholarship is a scholarship that is generously supported through donations by SVBT, KPA and the KPA faculty member. The scholarship was created by Julie Shaw in the memory of “Faith,” the first service dog she trained for her son, Dylan. See Faith’s memorial video.

We are working diligently with the Karen Pryor Academy to update our Faith Scholarship program. As a part of the new program, we will be awarding 3 veterinary technicians a $2000 scholarship each. We are excited to continue to offer this program and will be posting the new information as soon as it is complete. Until then, please contact us at info@svbt.org with any questions.
