The Hamel Scholarship for Further Education is designed to encourage further education among equestrians. Through a generous donation from the Kristen and James Hamel Family Foundation, the USHJA Foundation awards up to $25,000 to be used for college, graduate, trade, or professional school to one USHJA member each year.
Eligible candidates may apply for the Hamel Scholarship every year, but may only be awarded the scholarship once. The USHJA Foundation will award the scholarship mid-summer each year.
Applications for the 2019-2020 Hamel Scholarship are closed. Applications for the 2020-2021 school year will open on January 2, 2020.
