Submit Your Application for the 2020 Worth the Trust Scholarships
The Worth the Trust Scholarships were established in 2000 with the support of Joan Iversen Goswell to provide financial assistance to amateurs to pursue their education in eventing. The funds from the Worth the Trust Educational Scholarships may be used for training opportunities such as clinics, working student positions, and private or group instruction, or to learn from an official, course designer, technical delegate, judge, veterinarian, or organizer.
