The Meadows Standardbred Owners Association reminds members that applications for its 2016-17 Collegiate Scholarship Program are due May 6.
The MSOA Scholarship program, which began in 2008, continues to grow. Thanks to generous donations from many members of the harness racing community, more than $13,000 will be available to deserving young men and women.
This year’s scholarship options include the $5,000 MSOA Collegiate Scholarship, the $2,500 CSC Insurance Options Scholarship, the $1,000 Dr. Barry C. Betts Memorial Scholarship (sponsored by LCM Nutraceuticals), the Western Ideal Scholarship (sponsored by Hanover Shoe Farms) and the Winning Mister Scholarship (sponsored by Winning Key Farms).
Applicants must be a son or daughter of an owner, trainer or groom who has participated in harness racing in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania on a regular basis over the 2 years preceding the application. Said parent must be a member of the MSOA, and the applicant must be at least a senior in high school.
One application covers all of the above listed scholarships. An independent committee will review the applicants and determine the winners of each individual award.
Applications must be submitted to the MSOA Office or postmarked no later than Friday May 6, 2016.
