Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region is able to provide some scholarship opportunities for families, schools, and other organizations that might not be able to afford our programming or are in target areas where we receive a high number of animal law enforcement calls. There is no cost to apply for a scholarship, however there is a limited amount of scholarship funds that are available each year, so scholarships are not guaranteed. Once scholarship funds have been allocated for the year, participants and organizations might be deferred to the following year when funds are available. The Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region reserves the right to ask for supporting documentation as part of the registration process and can reward or deny any scholarship application for any reason but they are mainly rewarded based of the requirements below.
To qualify for a scholarship, you must meet one of the following criteria:
- Public Schools
- Federal free and reduced lunch ratio published by the Colorado Department of Education is at or above 50%.
- Private and Independent Schools
- Percentage of students on scholarship is at or above 50%.
- Individuals or Families
- Based off of household zip code and statement of need. You do not need to be in a government assistance program to qualify however it does help in determining scholarship percentage.
- Non-profit Community Organizations
- Utilize federal funding support, or if a local community organization’s demonstrated audience includes children from particular schools, these schools’ percentages of free/reduced meal participants may be used. Such organizations include libraries, recreation centers, and after-school programs.
- Be in a zip code that is deemed a "high call area" by our Animal Law Enforcement department.
