Pursuing higher education can be expensive. From paying tuition to buying necessary textbooks, attending college comes at a cost. Rover is committed to helping out with an annual scholarship for current students. Each year, we ask students across the country to submit their 400-500 word essays.
For 2020, we asked participants to write about how having a pet growing up helped shaped them to be the adult they are today. We read so many wonderful essays about what it’s like to have a pet. Ultimately we chose one that really authentically captured the unique range of what it means to be a pet parent and what pets can teach us humans about life and loss.
We’re excited to introduce you to our 2020 Rover scholarship winner, Anastazia Rudolph!
Rudolph calls Nevada home but will be attending the University of Alaska in Fairbanks this fall. Her intent is to major in emergency management and homeland security.
“I am excited that I will finally be able to study the subject that interests me most,” Rudolph said. “I have done search and rescue through the Civil Air Patrol for almost three years now and can’t wait to learn about handling incidents on a larger scale.”
Rover is excited to offer Rudolph the 2020 scholarship to help her achieve this. For more information on the Rovers scholarship, you can read the prompt here.
