Dec. 1 Deadline to Apply for
Brittney Joe Unbridled Spirit Scholarships

Applications currently being accepted for the 2019 Brittney Joe Unbridled Spirit Scholarships.
The deadline to apply is Dec. 1.

Up to two, $2,500 scholarships are available to Kentucky youth who have demonstrated a clear responsibility and affection for their horses by the promotion of the Kentucky Quarter Horse Youth Association and its programs. The Association offers its members participation on its All-American Quarter Horse Congress National Youth Association Team Tournament team, as well as the AQHYA Youth World Championship Show team.

Named in honor of Brittney Joe Prewitt, who tragically passed away in 2007 at age 17, this award was established by the Kentucky Quarter Horse Association (KyQHA) and is awarded through an American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) Endowment. Candidates must apply as a college sophomore in anticipation of continuing their junior and senior years as an undergraduate enrolled at an accredited college or university of their choice.

Students must be a Kentucky resident with at least two years of membership in the KyQHYA, one year of which must be their last eligible year of youth, with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0.
