Attention:  College-bound Seniors:

Are you in your final year of 4-H eligibility and/or entering college next fall?  Have you been a member of the Snohomish County 4-H Horse program for at least three years? College is expensive – we can help!  The 4-H Horse Program offers three college scholarships each year to Snohomish County 4-H Horse Program members who will be entering their first or second year of post-secondary education.  This can be to an accredited college, university or trade school , and taking a “gap” year is allowed. Two scholarships are for $1,500.00 each, and the highest scoring applicant will receive a $2,000.00 scholarship.

The application is a two-part process. First you submit a completed packet, which contains your application, an essay, two letters of recommendation, and your permanent record book.  Completed application packets should be returned to Linda Conway, 29202 Old Pipeline Rd, Monroe, WA 98272. Deadline for return of a completed packet is April 1. This phase is scored by a panel of judges, and the top ten scoring applicants are invited to participate in the second phase, an interview, which takes place at the Extension Office in mid-May.  (This year’s interviews will probably be via zoom meeting).  Completed packets should be returned to Linda Conway, 29202 Old Pipeline Rd., Monroe WA 98272.

Questions? Completed packets should be returned to Linda Conway, 29202 Old Pipeline Rd., Monroe WA 98272.  Contact Linda Conway, email linda4travel@hotmail.com, phone 360-793-1829 (home) or 425-418-1623 (cell)
