Thanks to your generosity, the American Quarter Horse Foundation provides a variety of scholarships to help our youth achieve their dream of higher education. Your support is an investment in the future of our horses as these deserving students develop into industry leaders.

Each year the number of scholarship applications received by the Foundation far exceeds funds available for distribution, and the cost of higher education continues to rise. One of the most impactful ways to address this challenge is funding scholarship endowments. Gifts to an endowed scholarship are not spent; only the interest income is used to award scholarships. This means your gift keeps working for the future of our youth and horses!

Region 1 and 6 recognize the importance of developing youth through scholarships. These regions are working to build scholarship endowments for youth residing in their respective geographic areas. The endowments will be managed by the Foundation.
