For the past six years over 75 Rebecca Broussard Developing International Rider Grants have been awarded to assist in the development of world-class event riders. From travelling to the Event at Rebecca Farm to training and competing across the country and overseas, the grants have helped offset expenses as riders pursue their eventing dreams of representing the U.S. at international competition.
In 2010, the Rebecca Broussard Developing International Rider Grants were established thanks to the generosity of the Broussard Charitable Foundation. The grants are separated into three types: Travel Grants, National International Rider Grant and Global International Rider Grant. These grants are available to any rider of any age who is successfully competing at the Advanced level and has not already represented the U.S. at any international CCIO3* or CCIO4*.
The Travel Grants will be awarded to multiple riders for the purposes of offsetting travel expenses to compete at the Event at Rebecca Farm CIC3* or CCI3* held on July 19-23, 2017. To apply, please submit a Travel Grant Application to the USEA Foundation by June 20, 2017.
The applications for the $10,000 National International Rider Grant and the $30,000 Global International Rider Grant will be available after the grant interviews at the Event at Rebecca Farm. While the application is not due until November 1, 2017, all potential candidates will be interviewed in person at the Event at Rebecca Farm. In order to be eligible from the $10,000 and $30,000, candidates must be present at the interviews held by the grant committee.
