The Maine Horse Association encourages excellence in its youth members by providing a yearly scholarship to an outstanding young man or woman who will be, or is currently, enrolled in a post secondary educational program. The applicant must be a Maine resident who is currently a member in good standing with the MHA.
This scholarship will be awarded annually to a high school senior or college student who plans to continue their education in college, technical or trade school, or an apprenticeship. NOTE: It does not have to be an equine-related career! The scholarship will be paid directly to the applicant after receiving a written request, along with proof of acceptance and completion of their first semester. Scholarship must be paid to student within two years after it is awarded.
Selection will be based on applicant’s ability and aptitude for serious study, community service, leadership, and achievements. Previous winners are ineligible to participate a second time, but applicants who did not win are definitely encouraged to reapply!
Please fill out the MHA Scholarship Application with all the necessary information and references, and send it in along with a copy of your most recent transcript from high school and/or school in attendance.
