The Rebecca Broussard Travel Grants are one of three types of Rebecca Broussard Developing International Rider Grants offered each year thanks to the generosity of the Broussard Charitable Foundation and administration of the USEA Foundation. 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 July18-22, 2018. To apply, please submit a Travel Grant Application to the USEA Foundation by June 20, 2018.

For the past seven years over 90 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. 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*.

Even if your schedule does not currently include competing at The Event at Rebecca Farm, it is always good to have a back-up plan as with horses the best-laid plans can go awry. Submit an application anyway so that a check for the grant will be waiting for you if you do decide to enter. If your competition schedule runs to order then nothing is lost, but you have everything to gain by submitting an application.

The applications for the $10,000 National International Rider Grant and the $50,000 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, 2018, all potential candidates will be interviewed in person at the Event at Rebecca Farm. In order to be eligible from the $10,000 and $50,000, candidates must be present at the interviews held by the grant committee.
