Area 1 Scholarship Program

I’m part of the Area 1 Scholarship Committee, which awards four people each year with a small grant to pursue educational opportunities in the sport of eventing. It’s all Hannah‘s fault, really; she emailed me with instructions to talk her out of volunteering to help create the program, and that ended up sucking me in too.

It’s been an amazingly rewarding experience. I was deeply humbled by the applications we received: so many dedicated, brilliant, talented people who shared their lives and their dreams with us. I cried at more than a few.

As Hannah just posted, our first two recipients have written up their experiences [PDF]. We have our two fall applicants picked and confirmed. It’s well and truly off the ground and I couldn’t be prouder. Eventers helping eventers: awesome.
