2018 Eventing Officials Scholarship Now Open for Applications

The USEA has established an educational scholarship in memory of the late Roger Haller. This scholarship is designed to provide financial assistance to a licensed official who is working towards promotion to the “R” license, the “S” license, or the FEI licenses. The Roger Haller Eventing Officials Scholarship may be used to offset the costs involved in attending the necessary seminars and obtaining the practical experience required to attain promotion to the next level of licensing. The USEA will award a scholarship of $5,000 to a qualified individual in 2018. The sport is in urgent need of well-trained and committed officials who can serve at the highest international levels of the sport, a need that Haller was aware of and one that concerned him greatly. Increasing the pool of eventing officials was one of the reasons he devoted so much of his time to addressing the shortfall by developing the USEA’s educational programs for officials. We sincerely hope that this annual scholarship bearing Roger Haller’s name will help increase the number of eventing judges and technical delegates qualified to officiate internationally and so ensure the health of the sport for the future.

All those who meet the eligibility requirements listed below are invited to complete the scholarship application.

Eligibility Requirements for the USEA Eventing Officials Scholarship

  1. Applicants must be current members in good standing with the USEA and USEF.
  2. Applicants must be current USEF Licensed Officials and at a minimum hold the “r” status as an Eventing Judge or Technical Delegate.
  3. Applicants should demonstrate their commitment and plans to upgrade their license to USEF “R”, USEF “S”, FEI 1/2* or FEI 3/4*

The deadline for applications is November 12, 2018 and the scholarship will be awarded at the USEA Annual Meeting & Convention in New Orleans, Louisiana, December 6-9. Click here to apply.
