In 2000 and with the support of Joan Iversen Goswell, the Worth the Trust Scholarships were established to provide financial assistance to amateurs to pursue their education in eventing. The funds from the Worth the Trust Educational Scholarship 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.

In 2020, the Worth the Trust Young Adult and Adult Amateur Scholarships were consolidated into a single educational scholarship available to riders 16 years old or older as of January 1, 2021 who have declared amateur status with the USEA. Applicants for the $4,000 scholarship must complete 10 hours of volunteer work with a national or local charitable organization, any minority/disadvantaged group, or local eventing association or horse trials.

The deadline for submission of applications is October 5, 2020. Applicants should submit an essay explaining why the scholarship is important to him or her, how they intend to use the funds, and their riding and competing experiences. Click here to access the application.

The recipient of the scholarship will be announced in December.

For more information, please contact Nancy Knight at [email protected] or (703) 669-9997.
