Academic Scholarships – Give Now

Each year, the American Paint Horse Foundation awards scholarship funds to some of AjPHA’s most deserving young members. Over the past quarter century, the American Paint Horse Foundation has awarded more than $800,000 in scholarships to 272 students.
In addition to its Youth World Show scholarship program, the Foundation awards dozens of academic scholarships in the amount of $1,000 per year each to Paint Horse youth.
Who are the students who receive Foundation scholarships? They are the hard-working young horsemen and -women you see striving every day to be the best both in the horse show arena and in their academic pursuits. These students are supported by the generous contributions given to the Foundation program by APHA members and supporters.
Academic scholarships are generated from American Paint Horse Foundation endowments. Currently, any new endowment must reach a minimum of $25,000 before it can generate a scholarship.

For academic scholarship consideration, students must be a member of the AjPHA or APHA, must pass a college entrance examination, provide three letters of reference and submit an essay explaining their educational plans. Once they have been granted a scholarship, they must maintain a “B” or better grade-point average to be eligible for renewal.
To apply for an academic scholarship, the application and letters of reference must be postmarked by March 1 prior to the academic year.
