The USEA Foundation has opened the application process for the 2019 Rebecca Broussard International Travel Grants, which award funding to riders aiming to compete in the international divisions at The Event at Rebecca Farm on July 24-28 in Kalispell, Montana.

Each year, three types of Rebecca Broussard International Developing Grants are awarded “to assist and to encourage the development of event riders at the highest level of the sport.” The Travel Grants assist with the costs of traveling to Montana. A $10,000 National Developing Rider Grant, affectionally called the “Little Becky,” and a $50,000 International Developing Rider Grant called the “Big Becky” are also awarded.

Prior to the start of the Event at Rebecca Farm, recipients of the Travel Grants will participate in interviews with the USEA Foundation’s Rebecca Broussard International Developing Riders Committee, which will be used in selecting the recipients of the International Developing Rider Grant and the National Developing Rider Grant. Both grants will be presented at the USEA Annual Meeting and Convention on Dec. 12-15 in Boston.
