Complete a single application to determine your eligibility for available scholarship funding. Eligibility of applicants is based on the individual criteria and requirements provided for each scholarship offered. Recipients are selected based on academic achievement, financial need and Quarter Horse involvement, as well as an applicant’s outstanding leadership and communication skills. The grading scale for selection of each scholarship will vary dependent upon the criteria established by that scholarship's donor.
Submitted materials must include a completed application form with financial information, three reference letters or appraisal forms, and a high school or college transcript. Students applying for a state or regional scholarship will also need to provide proof of membership in their state affiliate.
Recipients are chosen by a selection group as determined by the American Quarter Horse Foundation’s Board of Trustees. All recipient recommendations made by the selection group are ultimately approved by the Board of Trustees.
