The United States Equestrian Federation (US Equestrian), in Lexington, Kentucky, encourages high school seniors to submit their applications for the 2023 US Equestrian Higher Education Scholarship by July 31.
The scholarship is open to graduating high school seniors who will be attending college in the fall of 2023 and who are competing members or subscribers of US Equestrian, the national governing body for most U.S. horse sports.
This program awards five $1,000 scholarships each year to US Equestrian members from any breed or discipline who are committed to continuing their equestrian involvement in college. College classes in equine subjects, participation in an intercollegiate equestrian team or a horse-related job, internship or volunteer position, are among the ways that scholarship recipients can continue their participation in the equestrian community.
