The STCA offers two separate grants annually to a Regional Club that would like to further the education of its members and guests. The education programs may be of any form: health, breeding, grooming, handling, training; virtually every aspect of positive promotion and education of our breed.
Guidelines for grant applications due by September 18 for consideration for 2020.
Written Statement of need: what event/seminar your club plans to offer.
What are the desired outcomes of your educational event?
How will your club plan for continued and ongoing education?
