Candidates for the award must have qualified for the medal in year of final and be attending school. Scholarships awards will be presented at the Finals for each discipline.
Selection will be based on the ability and aptitude for pursuing education beyond the high school level, community service, leadership and achievement with horses; less on financial need. Previous applicants not awarded the scholarship may reapply.
If in the opinion of the Scholarship Committee, no applicant meets the standards as set by the Committee, the scholarship funds will be held within the NEHC Scholarship Account.
NEHC will furnish each committee with a certificate to be presented to the NEHC scholarship winner, to be completed by the recipient and sent to the Administration Office with a copy of their transcripts, for payment to the recipient upon completing their 1st semester in Post Secondary School. The scholarship will expire in 5 years unless a letter of intent is received at the NEHC administration office.
