The Appaloosa Youth Foundation awards scholarships to outstanding youth members of the Appaloosa Horse Club or Appaloosa Youth Association wishing to pursue higher education. Scholarships are awarded annually, with the entire amount paid to the financial office of the college or university the student will be attending. The entire award is paid at the beginning of the student's first semester; is non-transferable from the recipient; and must be used within one year. Each applicant may only apply for one of the three scholarships available, Territory, Continuing or Sagebrush Circuit.
The territory scholarship awards to one graduating senior in each of the six territories. "At-Large" scholarships may also be awarded, at random, in the category. In order to apply for this scholarship, the applicant must hold a high school diploma or equivalent certification, or be anticipating high school graduation this year. GPA must be at least a 2.5 on a 4.0 scale or a 3.8 on a 6.8 scale. Each applicant must be a current member of the Appaloosa Horse Club or the Appaloosa Youth Association to be eligible to apply for an Appaloosa Youth Foundation scholarship. Students who are in the immediate family of an employee, representative, or national director of the ApHC or the AYF are not eligible to apply.For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
