Equine Knowledge & Skills Competition

Equine Knowledge & Skills Competition

All High School students and transfer students are encouraged to attend the Morrisville State College Equine Science Department Scholarship Competition. High School students with an average greater than or equal to 80% or a GPA greater than or equal to 3.0 are eligible to participate in the Equine Department Scholarship Competition on April 19, 2012. Home-schooled students should submit a portfolio of courses completed and an essay describing their experiences in the equine industry. 

A student may compete for the scholarships in more than one year. However, only one scholarship per student will be applied toward tuition at Morrisville State College. If an individual wins a smaller scholarship, (s)he may compete the next year for a larger scholarship and the larger of the scholarships will be applied toward tuition. In addition, students who participate in this contest will also have their skills assessed in order to ensure correct placement in the proper Equitation classes when they enter Morrisville, thus eliminating the need to come back a second time for a riding placement test. 

In order to take part in the scholarship competition, student’s applications must be received by the scholarship committee by April 6, 2012.
