Making Dreams Happen

Since its inception in 1976, the American Quarter Horse Foundation scholarship program has given more than $6.3 million in financial assistance to over 1,100 youth members. Each year, the Foundation awards almost 200 scholarships ranging from general youth awards to regional and career path awards.

The Foundation selects scholarship recipients based on financial need, academic merit, equine involvement and civic activities. These individuals are today’s students and tomorrow’s leaders. With an education, great mentoring and a love of the Quarter Horse, these young people will become the industry’s next generation of owners, breeders, trainers, journalists and veterinarians.

These awards would not be possible without the generous support of Foundation donors. Donors can either support a current scholarship or create an endowment of their own. Scholarship programs created by donors may be generalized and available to any qualified applicant, or they can be tailored to a certain major, background or career interest.

AQHA, the Foundation and its donors are honored to have created a legacy of support for its youth members. These scholarship recipients will be the individuals who carry with them a passion and dedication to the American Quarter Horse as they begin their careers. They are the faces of AQHA’s next generation.
