For the second year, this scholarship is jointly sponsored by the two organizations for a deserving local high school senior with a demonstrated involvement in equestrian activities as well as academic achievement, community service, and financial need.
Both the Mounted Patrol Foundation and WHOA! share a deep interest in the next generation of equestrians, as well as a commitment to helping them achieve worthwhile goals, through each organizations’ ongoing activities and their joint sponsorship of the $10,000 Woodside-area Equestrian Merit Scholarship Award.

Eligible applicants are seniors who attend high schools in San Mateo, Santa Clara, and San Francisco Counties, and who have been accepted to and plan to attend a college, university, or other continuing education program this fall.
Applicants will need to provide a complete application and at least one reference letter from their faculty/teacher, college counselor, or someone who can attest to their equestrian involvement. Up to three reference letters will be accepted.
Finalists will be required to provide transcripts showing their GPA, and prove need for financial aid by submitting a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) or equivalent documentation.
The $10,000 Woodside-area Equestrian Merit Scholarship Award will be paid directly to the recipient’s college, university, or continuing education program in support of the recipient’s tuition, fees, room, and/or board. The scholarship will be awarded in early June, 2021.
