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

After taking a hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the USEA is pleased to announce that the Worth The Trust Educational Scholarship will again be awarded at the end of 2021 for the 2022 calendar year and at the end of 2022 for the 2023 calendar year.

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, 2022 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 4, 2021. 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.

The recipient of the scholarship will be announced in December at the 2021 USEA Annual Meeting & Convention in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The VIP Volunteer: Jim Moyer

If you take one look at Jim Moyer’s Facebook page, you will see it is filled with sweet sentiments from the lives he has touched through his work in the equine industry. Moyer’s involvement with horses began when he met his future wife Jean 50 years ago. As Jean went on to become a prominent instructor in eventing, Moyer found that their friend circle was full of horse people, so it was only natural that he should find his place in the community.
