Whatcha doing this weekend? Consider putting pen to paper (JK, nobody uses that stuff anymore, feel free to use your laptop) to submit an essay toward a 2019 USEA Worth the Trust Sports Psychology Scholarship.
When it comes to eventing, your head game is as important as anything else — and it’s a component of our training that we often neglect. Speaking with a qualified sports psychology counselor can help you develop tools you need to be confident and successful as a rider and competitor.
The Worth the Trust Sports Psychology Scholarships are awarded annually to one Adult Amateur, age 26 and up, and one Young Adult Amateur, age 16-25. The recipient of the Adult Amateur Scholarship will receive $500; the Young Adult Amateur Scholarship recipient will receive $700. Applicants must be current members in good standing with the USEA.
Applicants should submit an essay explaining why the scholarship is important to him or her, how they intend to use the funds, and their riding and competing experiences. For inspiration, check out Lorraine Barrows’ winning essay from 2014 here.
The deadline for applications is Monday, October 1, 2018. Scholarship winners will be notified in December 2018.
