2018 Region XI Scholarship opportunities!

In 2018 Region XI is proud to announce two scholarship opportunities are available. One is for high school seniors and one is for continuing education students.  Two scholarships, each in the amount of $1000, are available to be awarded at the Region XI Championship Horse Show to current members in good standing of a Region XI Club attending a two or four year college or university for advancement of their education.  These scholarships can be awarded to a student only once during his/her school career.  Please take advantage of this opportunity to supplement your college funding.  Applications may be received by contacting Ann Hammer, Scholarship Chair, 12154 Rose Road, Trenton, IL 62293-4640, or by downloading the correct application from the Region XI website.  All applications must be requested or downloaded by the April 15, 2018 application request deadline.  All application materials must be submitted together in one envelope by May 1, 2018 to be considered for an award.
