American Saddlebred Horse Association (ASHA) Youth Scholarship applications will be due at the end of this month, on Thursday, April 30. Applications can be found on the ASHA website at www.asha.net/Youth-Scholarships
along with additional documents and information.
The purpose of these scholarships is to encourage, support and recognize participation in all aspects of the American Saddlebred industry, as well as to strengthen the American Saddlebred industry and breed through education. Four general scholarships of $5,000 are awarded, as well as the Youth-to-Youth Scholarship, which is funded by donations and guaranteed to $5,000 by the association. There is also one $2,500 scholarship funded by the American Saddlebred Association of Alabama.
Scholarships are awarded only to high school graduates or those students whose graduation is imminent. Applications must be received by April 30 of the year in which the applicant wishes to receive the scholarship. The scholarship money will be paid directly to the institution, university, college or trade school for post-secondary educational expenses.
