Youth Scholarships through the American Paint Horse Association 

 
Each year, the American Paint Horse Foundation awards scholarship funds to some of AjPHA’s most deserving young members.
 
Over the past quarter century, the American Paint Horse Foundation has awarded more than $800,000 in scholarships to 272 students. A youth development program also helps fund American Junior Paint Horse leadership symposiums every year and the AjPHA Member of the Year Scholarship Fund.
 
The Foundation annually awards 50 academic scholarships in the amount of $1,000 each to Paint Horse youth.
 
Who are the students who receive Foundation scholarships? They are the hard-working young horsemen and -women you see striving every day to be the best both in the horse show arena and in their academic pursuits. These students are supported by the generous donations given to the Foundation program by APHA members.
 
For scholarship consideration, students must be a member of the AjPHA or APHA, must pass a college entrance examination, provide three letters of reference and submit an essay explaining their educational plans. Once they have been granted a scholarship, they must maintain a "B" or better grade-point average to be eligible for renewal.
