Most of us are more familiar with conventional scholarship programs for honor students or simply those having good grades and unique backgrounds. Not much is known about micro-scholarship programs wherein you can get student grants in more attainable goals like volunteer or community services and taking leadership roles that creates an impact in communities.

Every year the cost of college just keeps soaring and it’s even more necessary to look for other options to conventional scholarship grants and monetary assistance. The best new cutting-edge approach is through micro-scholarships. This new way of paying for school is now trending more than ever.

Here at K9 Carts, we are dedicated to serving handicapped dogs & cats worldwide and changing the lives for you and your pets through the miracle of mobility. K9 Carts has been serving mobility impaired pets and their owners since the mid-1970s.

Now, we are looking to inspire the next generation of animal lovers by sponsoring a $1,000 scholarship for students entering the field of Veterinary Medicine. Our program is available for undergraduate and graduate levels.
