Scholarships for Trainers, Instructors, and Judges


About the Scholarship Program for Trainers, Instructors, and Judges

Current or former D4K activities’ participants (including trainers, volunteers, etc.) of any age are provided financial assistance for continuing education, including additional training and to enroll in USDF Instructor Certification or Judges Certification programs.  Any money awarded but not spent to achieve the goal outlined in the application must be returned to Dressage4Kids, Inc.

The Scholarship Committee expects scholarship recipients to give back to D4K programs commensurate with their knowledge and experience. By accepting scholarships, recipients must agree to volunteer their time and/or expertise in some way that will benefit or enhance D4K programs as a whole. Some ways that members give back for their scholarship awards include assisting at the various programs, conducting clinics, organizing a clinic or a fundraising event for scholarships, judging, writing an article, and/or being available for publicity, photos, etc.

All scholarship recipients will be required to write a report sharing what they have learned or accomplished in the form of a letter, journal or diary.  Photographs may be included. The report will be kept by the Committee, shared with local organizations if applicable, and may be used for publicity purposes to advance the overall awards program.

All decisions of the Scholarship Committee are final.
