WHC Scholarships

WHC Programs, such as the Scholarship Program, are funded by the money earned by holding the Midwest Horse Fair every year.

We regret to inform everyone, that due to the fact that the Midwest Horse Fair was canceled in 2020 & 2021, the Scholarship Program will not be able to accept applications or provide scholarships for 2022.

We hope to be able to run the program again in 2023, so please check back here for updates.
