In order to encourage juniors of all levels to take advantage of our state's competitive dressage environment, NCDCTA is pleased to offer scholarships to up to four junior riders (riders 18 and under as of December 31, 2017) at each of its four shows in 2017.

Each scholarship will cover the cost of four classes, one stall, and a shared tack stall. This application, due by the show's opening date, will be reviewed by a committee of NCDCTA board members. Applicants do not need to be NCDCTA members.

To be eligible, applicants must indicate enthusiasm, thoughtfulness in application, and dedication to competition as part of ongoing education in dressage. All qualified applicants will be put into a pool for each show. Winners will be drawn at random. Winners will be ineligible for others scholarships in that competition year, unless there are fewer new applicants than slots to be filled. Recipients will be responsible for the cost of classes beyond four, as well as the office fee, the USEF drug fee, and any other applicable fees, including but not limited to the USDF/GAIG qualifying fee and non-member fees.
