Before working at PETA, I spent a lot of time dreaming about how I could get more involved with helping animals. Sure, I signed up for the Street Team, but I wanted to do more. Are any of you in the same boat? If so, I highly recommend applying to be an intern to see what it’s like to work at PETA and how things are done! If funds are tight, don’t sweat it! I have an awesome scholarship to tell you about, and I think this will help a couple of you out.
I’m happy to share with you all that we are looking to present two people with the Matthew Eyton Scholarship Award! Two people will be chosen to receive $500 to go toward interning at PETA. Interested? Here’s what you do:
Act now because you have until only November 16 to apply for this scholarship! Best of luck to you all!*
*This contest is open only to people in the U.S. who are 18 to 24 years old. Two winners will be chosen by PETA staffers from submitted essays in which entrants use 1,000 words to explain why they deserve the scholarship to intern with PETA. The scholarship winners will be chosen based on experience in the animal rights movement, creativity, spelling, grammar, and overall dedication to and understanding of animal rights. Entry essays and résumés must be e-mailed to InternApplicants@peta.org with the subject line “Matthew Eyton Scholarship Award Application” by November 16, 2012. The winners will be chosen and notified by November 20, 2012. The award money cannot be used to purchase anything containing animal products. Award money will be sent to recipients once an agreement form is signed, which will state that the money must be returned if the intern is unable to meet the requirements of the internship (working 30-40 hours per week for a minimum of 30 days, completed within six months of receipt of the award). No purchase necessary. Void where prohibited by law.
