The Kentucky Horse Council (KHC) is pleased to announce that it is accepting applications for the 2005 Equine Education Scholarship program. The KHC is offering five scholarships to its members or children of its members (under 18 years of age) who will be attending a horse-related program at a Kentucky university or Kentucky-based horse educational program.  

The KHC’s goal is to award scholarships to deserving individuals who will be assets to Kentucky’s horse industry. The selection will be based on academic record, level of need, horse background, community service, career plans, and references. Five $1,000 scholarships will be awarded beginning the semester of enrollment in 2005. Individual awards of recognition will be presented at the KHC’s annual meeting in November.

Applications are available at the KHC’s office and web site,, and must be postmarked by Sept. 15, 2004.
