EQUUS Foundation and USEF Establish $1,500 Champion of Equine Service Scholarship
WESTPORT, CT - - The EQUUS Foundation and the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) have established a new volunteer recognition scholarship program specifically for USEF members aged 21 and under who hold a current USEF Competing Equestrian membership.
The $1,500 USEF Champion of Equine Service Scholarship for undergraduate and graduate studies is part of the EQUUS Foundation's Champions program sponsored by Ariat International, an incentive-based equine service program aimed at improving the welfare of horses and fostering the horse-human bond.
This new scholarship, replacing the original USEF Equestrians in Action sponsored by the EQUUS Foundation, expands the rewards involved with participation. All eligible applicants for the USEF scholarship are also automatically eligible for the other Champion benefits, including the EQUUS Foundation Champion of Equine Service Scholarships, the Win A Grant program, and drawings to win Ariat Gift Certificates. Additional benefits are under development.
A committee consisting of USEF and EQUUS Foundation representatives will be responsible for the evaluation of the applications. The selection of the recipient will be based on an assessment of the impact and extent of the individual's volunteer service.
