The veterinary technician field is a unique example of a female-dominated field, as 78.1% of veterinary technicians are women. 

Veterinary technicians earn an average wage of $37,434 per year, higher than the average $29,930 that veterinary assistants earn. Becoming a veterinary technician requires a degree, which prepares technicians to go on to become veterinarians.  

This scholarship is funded by the Homeward Bound Pets Humane Society. Homeward Bound Pets Humane Society is Oregon's first no-kill animal shelter and has provided medical care, safe shelter, and plenty of TLC to the abandoned, neglected, homeless, and abused dogs and cats of Yamhill County since 1975.

This scholarship allows Homeward Bound Pets Humane Society to give back to their community, and support students who are interested in pursuing veterinary technician degrees.  

Any high school senior who has a 3.0 GPA or higher, non-profit or volunteering experience, and will be enrolling in a one to two-year veterinary technician program or certificate may apply for this scholarship. 

To apply, tell us about a time you contributed to your community, and at least three well-thought-out reasons as to why you have decided to pursue a career as a veterinary technician?
