At Pawster we have a dedicated team of individuals that strive to provide detailed, in-depth information regarding proper Dog Nutrition. Our team publishes in-depth reviews, breed specific nutrition articles and specializes in researching the best puppy foods.

Our Scholarship is open to any undergraduate or graduate student currently enrolled in school in the United States. Although we prefer essays regarding Dog Nutrition, this is not a requirement.
