June 14, 2013
The American Quarter Horse Foundation scholarship program has given more than $5.7 million in financial assistance to more than 1,000 American Quarter Horse Youth Association members since its inception in 1976.
This year, the Foundation will award 133 students with a total of $277,000 for the 2013-2014 academic year.
The Foundation selects recipients based on financial need, academic merit, equine involvement and civic activities. These individuals are today’s students and tomorrow’s leaders of the equine industry. With an education, great mentoring and a love of the American Quarter Horse, these young adults will become the industry’s next generation of owners, breeders, trainers, journalists and veterinarians.
