Stephens College Equestrian Scholarship
Students interested in majoring in Equestrian are invited to apply for a $20,000 Equestrian program scholarship at Stephens College. The scholarship is $5,000 per year, renewable for up to four years based on specific academic criteria.
To be considered, students must complete the online scholarship application form and upload a riding video following the instructions on the web page. Basic guidelines:
a. Video should be no longer than 5 minutes.
b. You may choose from the following disciplines to feature in your video: reining, saddle seat, hunter/jumper, or western.
c. Open the PDF provided on the web page to view the course or pattern specific to your riding discipline.
d. On the entry form on our website, provide a link to your video on YouTube or another site allowing video uploads.
Students must apply and be accepted to Stephens College unconditionally to receive the scholarship. Submissions must be received by January 13th at 11:59 p.m. CST. The scholarship will be awarded to a recent high school graduate entering Stephens College in Fall. Students may not receive more than one program scholarship and are thus encouraged to submit for only one academic program scholarship competition.
The Equestrian faculty will judge all entries and determine the recipient. The recipient will be awarded a $5,000 scholarship, renewable each academic year. Additional scholarships may be available based on entries received. The recipient and all applicants will be notified by January 27th.
The scholarship will be applied to the recipient’s account each year, one-half in the Fall Semester and one-half in the Spring Semester. To renew the scholarship, the student must maintain a minimum 3.0 cumulative grade point average at Stephens and declare a major in Equestrian.
