Earlier this month, the Mounted Patrol Foundation and the Woodside-area Horse Owners Association announced they would be giving an Equestrian Merit Scholarship Award. The $10,000 scholarship is available to high school seniors in San Mateo, Santa Clara and San Francisco counties.
This scholarship is jointly sponsored by the two organizations for a deserving high school senior who has demonstrated involvement in equestrian activities while maintaining high-quality academic achievement and community service.
The application deadline is 3 p.m. on April 10. Eligible applicants are seniors who attend high schools in one of the three counties, and who have been accepted to and plan to attend a college, university or other continuing education program this fall. The money will be paid directly to the recipient’s college, university or continuing education program in support of the recipient’s education.
