If you are a young amateur rider or an adult amateur who could use a little help funding your eventing education, consider applying for a USEA Worth The Trust scholarship.

There are two scholarships available: a $3,000 Amateur Young Adult Scholarship for riders between the ages of 16 and 25, and a $2,000 Adult Amateur Scholarship for eventers 26 and up. Both can be applied toward a variety of training opportunities including clinics, working student positions, private or group instruction or even learning to officiate or working with a course designer, Technical Delegate, judge, veterinarian, etc. with approval from the scholarship panel.

Applicants must be members of the USEA as well as their local eventing club or association, and contribute at least six hours of volunteer work to a national or local charitable organization, any minority/disadvantaged group, a local eventing association or horse trials, etc.

The deadline for applications is October 1, 2016.
