Each year Region One awards educational scholarships to deserving students.
Applicants must be members of an AHA club in Region One.
Each applicant must submit at least two (2) and not more than four (4) letters of recommendation with their application. Required letters include: one (1) letter from an officer of an AHA club, 4-H club, FFA club, civic or community leader; and one (1) from the applicant’s high school principal, counselor, or college/university
Applicants must submit an official high school or college transcript. Copies of official ACT, SAT, or similar exam results must be attached.
Each application is carefully reviewed by the Scholarship Committee of REGION ONE. Applications are evaluated based on the following criteria: 25% based upon involvement in the Arabian industry, 50% based upon grade point average, 10% based upon the essay each applicant must submit with their application, 5% based upon extra curricular equine activities, 5% based upon extra curricular school and community activities, and 5% based upon personal references.
Scholarships are awarded annually, preceding the school year for which they must be used. Upon notification of enrollment, a check from the scholarship fund will be sent to the college/university by Region One to be applied to educational expenses in the recipient’s behalf.
