AMHA and Stephens to Offer Educational Scholarship



SHELBURNE, VT-The American Morgan Horse Association is pleased to partner with Stephens College, located in Columbia, Missouri, to offer an educational scholarship to a deserving incoming first-year female student beginning in 2011.

By design, this alliance enables AMHA to directly influence the industry's young equine professionals. For Stephens College, attracting dedicated and passionate students through the gateway of the professional world is a winning combination. Each scholarship recipient will receive a $5,000 equestrian leadership scholarship that can be reapplied for each year.

Potential candidates should possess the following:

• Passion for all things horse

• Academically oriented student interested in all phases of personal growth and development

• Community minded, interested and willing to be engaged in service activities

• Solid work ethic

• Desire to explore a profession in the equine industry

• Financial need

In addition, applicants also need to submit at least one reference letter from a person in the Morgan community.
