In 2012 the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) will offer more than $20,000 in grant money to qualified students and high school equestrian clubs or teams across the nation through its High School Equestrian Athlete program.
Students interested in applying for a grant will need to submit a 500 word essay that answers questions about their experiences in the USEF High School Equestrian Athlete program. Essay questions will be sent by email to all program participants in May and completed essays will be due between June 5th and 11th, 2012. All essays must be submitted through the applicant’s online USEF user account to be eligible for consideration by the selection committee. Additional information is available at USEF.org.
The USEF will also award ten $500 grants to local high school equestrian clubs and teams. These grants will be awarded to the ten clubs or teams in the USEF High School Equestrian Athlete program with the most student participation. State and national associations are not eligible to receive these grants.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about grants available through the USEF High School Equestrian Athlete program.
Enrollment in the program for the current school year is still open. For more information or to apply online, visit www.usef.org/highschool
