Announcing Equine Studies Scholarships!

The EQUUS Foundation will award $10,500 in scholarships to undergraduate and graduate level students enrolled in equine studies and veterinary programs at institutions of higher learning listed on the EQUUS Foundation’s Equine Education Network. The Equine Education Network is a one-of-its-kind platform featuring the colleges and universities in the United States offering equine-focused academic and athletic programs. The online application is open now through October 15.

“Millions of people love horses, and there are millions of horses in America,” said Lynn Coakley, EQUUS Foundation President, “but our equines are dependent on us for their care. The shortage of skilled labor is affecting all industry – including the equine industry. We are pleased to establish this scholarship program to support the next generation of equine professionals and to welcome the Intercollegiate Horse Shows Association (IHSA) as an Educational Partner.”

The EQUUS Foundation is honored to pay tribute to the life of Samantha Calzone and her everlasting passion for horses through the award of the Samantha “Sam” Calzone Memorial Scholarship.

The $2,500 scholarship will be reserved for current members of the Intercollegiate Horse Shows Association (IHSA) who are enrolled in the academic programs of institutions of higher learning listed on the EQUUS Foundation’s Equine Education Network.

Eight $1,000 scholarships will also be awarded. In addition to the Samantha Calzone Memorial Scholarship, one of the eight will be reserved for members of the Intercollegiate Horse Shows Association (IHSA).
