Canadian Eventing Committee Accepting Applications for the Athlete Development Scholarship Award
Ottawa, ON, Canada
The Canadian Eventing Committee have announced that they are accepting applications for the 2006 Canadian Eventing Athlete Development Scholarship Award Program.
Designed to recognize and encourage Canadian riders in the pursuit of international competition, this year's program offers a minimum of two scholarships of $1,000 each, with additional scholarships to be awarded if sponsorship funds are available.
"Last year the scholarship program saw over a dozen excellent applicants, which clearly reinforces the growth and development of Canadian Eventing," commented Lori Leach, Chair of the Selection Committee. "With the continued success of our up-and-coming riders, we hope that the number of eligible applicants continues to increase."
The scholarships are available to Canadian citizens, or those holding landed immigrant status, over the age of 16, as of January 1, 2006. To qualify for a scholarship, the applicant must have completed at least one FEI competition at the one star level. The application deadline is October 30, 2006.
The assessment criteria includes eventing experience, competition results, competition plans and goals, and dedication to the sport, including support and promotion of the sport of eventing in Canada.
