The United States Eventing Association is now accepting applications for the 2019 Worth the Trust Educational Scholarships. The Worth the Trust Scholarships were established to provide financial assistance to amateurs to pursue their education in eventing. The funds may be used for training opportunities such as clinics, working student positions, and private or group instruction, or to learn from an official, course designer, technical delegate, judge, veterinarian, or organizer.

The $3,000 Amateur Young Adult Scholarship is available to riders between the ages of 16 and 25, while the $2,000 Adult Amateur Scholarship is available to eventers 26 and up. Young Adult Amateur applicants must contribute at least 10 hours of volunteer work to a national or local charitable organization, any minority/disadvantaged group, or local eventing association or horse trials, while Adult Amateur applicants must contribute at least 6 volunteer hours. Applicants must be current members in good standing with the USEA.

The 2019 Worth the Trust Educational Scholarships will be awarded at the 2018 USEA Annual Meeting and Convention, December 5-9, 2018 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

About the Worth the Trust Scholarship
Since 2000, the Worth the Trust Scholarships has provided financial assistance for young adult amateurs and adult amateurs for the purpose of pursuing continued education in eventing. These scholarships is provided by Joan Iversen Goswell in honor of her horse, Worth the Trust, a 15.3 hand Thoroughbred gelding (Wind and Wuthering x Stop Over Station), who competed successfully for many years, including winning the Kentucky Three-Day Event in 1997 with Karen O'Connor. In 2017, to continue to offer a helping hand, Goswell created the Worth the Trust Sports Psychology Scholarships to help amateurs master the ever-challenging mental side of the sport. Click here to read the story of Worth the Trust's 1997 Kentucky Three-Day Event win.
