WSHJA National Finals Event Scholarships
A limited number of competition scholarships (up to a
maximum total of $10,000 annually) are available to qualifying WSHJA Regular Members
in order to provide assistance for those competing in
National Finals events (see list below).
National Finals event scholarships are awarded to riders
who have competed in out-of-state
finals only. Riders competing in a second final can
qualify for a greater award, but the 2nd final must be in a state different
than the 1st
final. Awards are S750 for the 1st final and $1000 for the
2nd final. Awards are generally paid in December.
