The Clinic Scholarship Program has changed in 2019. Please review the qualifying criteria and award process carefully.

The LVDA Clinic Scholarship program is a multiple scholarship program that will provide $50 scholarships for members to use to defray the costs of riding in an LVDA-sponsored clinic. A maximum of 10 $50 Clinic Scholarships will be granted each calendar year.  This does not include Fix-a-Tests, and these scholarships cannot be applied to anything other than a clinic entry fee. 

Clinic Scholarships can be applied towards these 2019 Clinics: 

March 31 -   Clinic with Cara Klothe  -Event Over
April 6 - Cavaletti Clinic -Event Over
May 5 -  Clinic with Alexa Derr -Event Over
August 19 - Clinic with Scott Peterson
August 31- Sep 1-   Clinic with Lauren Sprieser

LVDA members who meet the following qualifying criteria can apply for LVDA Clinic Scholarships:

  • Any current member in good standing (membership dues paid, no outstanding fees due) can apply for a clinic scholarship.

  • Members must have volunteered at least 4 hours of “hands on activities” at an LVDA event within the past 12 months.

  • Eligible members can receive a clinic scholarship once per year.

Scholarship Award Process:

  • Clinic scholarships are "Clinic Specific." Clinic Scholarship applications will open on the opening date for the clinic, and will close on the closing date for that clinic.

  • No late applications will be accepted.

  • The Scholarship Committee will decide how many scholarships are available for each clinic.

  • If there are more applicants than available scholarships for the clinic, the committee will randomly draw names.

  • Clinic scholarship recipients will be reimbursed $50.00 after they submit a short essay about their clinic experience (~3 paragraphs) to the Newsletter Editor.

  • If, for some reason, a clinic scholarship recipient is unable to ride in that clinic and they provide a veterinarian/medical excuse, they will be guaranteed another clinic scholarship within 12 months.  Without a veterinarian/medical excuse, the recipient will forfeit their scholarship and receive no guarantee of another within 12 months.

​​If circumstances arise that are not covered by these guidelines, the Scholarship Committee will decide how to resolve any issues.  All decisions made by the Scholarship Committee are final.
