Youth Scholarship / Adult Educational Grant
The New York State Horse Council (NYSHC) will award two different one thousand ($1,000.00) awards per-year! The first award is a Youth Scholarship that will be given to a NYSHC member whose age is 16 to 24 years old within the given year. The second award is an Adult Educational Grant which will be awarded to a NYSHC member whose age is 25 years and older. Both the Youth Scholarship and the Adult Educational Grant will be awarded to a NYSHC member who is attending a collegiate horse related program or a professional certification program (Parelli, John Lyons, farrier, etc.).

They will be evaluated by the NYSHC Scholarship Committee and the recipients of each award will be notified by June 1st of the same year.
