The West Coast Equine Foundation is a non-profit organization working to advance the equine industry through scholarships and grants that support a variety of equine health and youth agricultural programs. The intention of this scholarship is to advocate for the educational opportunities of youth pursuing a career in an equine related field. Students will be selected based on their academic and extracurricular activities, with an emphasis placed on hard working individuals who possess a desire to work in the equine industry.
Scholarships are given to first year college students as well as those already pursuing a college education. This scholarship is limited to West Coast students: California, Nevada, Arizona, Oregon, and Washington. The WCEF was created as a way for MEC management to give back to the horse community that has so loyally supported the Equestrian Center and its growing calendar of annual events. The West Coast Equine Foundation will select the scholarship recipients and administer the program.
