The Appaloosa Youth Foundation awards scholarships to outstanding youth members of the Appaloosa Horse Club or Appaloosa Youth Association wishing to pursue higher education. Scholarships are awarded annually, with the entire amount paid to the financial office of the college or university the student will be attending. The entire award is paid at the beginning of the student’s first semester; is non-transferable from the recipient; and must be used within one year.
One $1,000 scholarship may be available to a college student who will be attending college in the upcoming fall with a first or second semester sophomore standing. The applicant must have maintained a GPA of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale or a 4.5 on a 6.0 scale during their freshman year at a college or university. Each applicant must be a current member of the Appaloosa Horse Club or the Appaloosa Youth Association to be eligible to apply for an Appaloosa Youth Foundation scholarship. Students who are in the immediate family of an employee, representative, or national director of the ApHC or the AYF are not eligible to apply.
