In light of the impacts of COVID-19 the American Saddlebred Horse Association is extending the ASHA Youth Scholarship Application deadline through June 1. Information and application materials available here.
ASHA also will have a new temporary contact for scholarship questions and inquiries for this year. Please direct application submissions and questions to ASHA Marketing and Communications Manager Jessica Cushing firstname.lastname@example.org
Since 1991, ASHA has awarded more than $200,000 in scholarships to youth involved with American Saddlebreds. Each year, ASHA recognizes its members in grades 11 or higher, age 21 and under, on the basis of academic success, financial need, extracurricular activities, including community service, involvement with American Saddlebred horses and personal references. An interview may be included in the selection process, and applicants are asked to write an essay, which includes information about school experiences, special interests, hobbies and ASHA activities.
The purpose of these scholarships is to encourage, support and recognize participation in all aspects of the American Saddlebred industry, as well as to strengthen the American Saddlebred industry and breed through education.
