Applications are being Accepted for Stephen F. Nava Memorial Vocational Grant



The Stephen F. Nava Memorial Vocational Grant was created by generous donations to The New England Morgan Horse Show in remembrance of Stephen. He was a wonderful person who was loved by his family and friends as well as the Morgan Horse community. This grant is available to any young adult under the age of 25 who would like to better his or herself in preparing to enter the working world.  

The grant could be used for a trade school, an intense learning program, a specialty program that might not fit into the normal secondary or college criteria. He or she should demonstrate enthusiasm, strong work ethic, love of life, and willingness to help others unselfishly just as Stephen exhibited over the years of his young life. 
Stephen was always willing to lend a helping hand. Through this grant we hope to not only keep Stephen’s memory alive but also help other young people to make their mark on the world.  

Applicants need not be a NEMHA member, but a family member needs to be a member in good standings of the NEMHA. Applications are available at Hobby Knoll Stables, Ann Anderson 35 Taylor Street Duxbury, MA 02332 or by e-mail at [email protected]. The grant application for 2017 will close at the end of the day on August 31, 2017.
