Appaloosa Youth Foundation offers Scholarships

MOSCOW, Idaho—Times are tough and paying for college isn’t easy, but the Appaloosa Youth Foundation (AYF), a subsidiary of the Appaloosa Youth Association (AYA), is making it easier by offering up to $10,000 in scholarships! The AYF is proud to provide outstanding youth members of the AYA or the Appaloosa Horse Club (ApHC) the opportunity to offset college expenses.

The AYF offers scholarships in three categories: Territory Scholarship, Continuing Education Scholarship and the Sagebrush Circuit Lew & Jo Eklund Scholarship.

The Territory Scholarship offers six awards of up to $1,000 that may be given to one graduating high school student that is entering an institution of higher education in the fall in each of the six ApHC territories. An additional scholarship of up to $1,000 may be awarded at random in this category. Applicants must submit a copy of official ACT, SAT or similar exam results, and they must have at least a 2.5 grade point average on a 4.0 scale or 3.8 GPA on a 6.0 scale.

The Continuing Education Scholarship is a $1,000 award available to one college sophomore student each year. The student must have maintained at least a 2.5 GPA on a 4.0 scale or 3.8 GPA on a 6.0 scale during their freshmen year of college. Applicants must provide proof of enrollment.

The Sagebrush Circuit Lew & Jo Eklund Scholarship may award $2,000 to one college junior, senior or graduate student pursuing a degree in an equine-related field. Applicants must include proof of enrollment.

All scholarship submissions must include a complete official application, filled out by the person applying for the scholarship; official transcript; a 200-400 word essay regarding experiences with horses; photograph; and three (3) letters of personal recommendation that must be mailed separately. Applications must be received in the ApHC office no later than June 1. No exceptions.

For an application and additional information about the AYF scholarship program, please visit http://www.appaloosayouth.com or call the Youth Coordinator at (208) 882-5578 ext. 264.

The Appaloosa Horse Club (ApHC) was established in 1938, with a mission of preserving, promoting and enhancing the Appaloosa breed. The ApHC has since registered more than 670,000 Appaloosas, which are known for their distinctive color, intelligence and even temperament. True to their reputation as an extremely versatile breed, Appaloosas can be found in nearly every discipline including racing, endurance riding and serving as reliable family horses. The international breed registry is headquartered in Moscow, Idaho, the heart of the Palouse region—the Appaloosa breed’s namesake and point of origin.
