Hermitage No-Kill cat shelter to award two scholarships

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Hermitage No-Kill Cat Shelter & Sanctuary announced in May that it is making two scholarships available to students through a new, unpaid internship program at the shelter this summer.

As a part of their community outreach and through the generosity of donors, The Hermitage will award scholarships of up to $1,000 to students enrolled in local universities and community colleges.

This internship program is designed to provide a unique and valuable opportunity for students interested in gaining management experience. Over the course of eight weeks, interns will train and assist in various shelter departments, allowing them to gain a complete look into non-profit business & shelter management.

"This internship program has been crafted to help young students gain valuable business experience and help them to grow as young professionals," said Lee Bucyk, Executive Director of The Hermitage. "The selected students will work as part of a collaborative team and be educated on animal welfare and the tenets of the no-kill philosophy. At the end of their internship, the students will present a final project to shelter staff that will benefit the shelter in some unique and interesting way."

Potential candidates should be enrolled full-time in an accredited two or four year degree program and have a minimum 2.5 GPA.  The final award amount will be based on the intern's performance and progress throughout the entire semester and upon completion of the semester, scholarship funds will be dispersed to the appropriate college and designated for tuition, books or other essential school supplies.

For more information on guidelines or to apply, please contact heather@hermitagecatshelter.org or call the shelter at 571-7839.
