Joanne C. Corsiglia & NEHC Scholarship Awards




   Dedicated to the Memory of Mr. & Mrs. Frederick Reeve 

The New England Equitation Committee is pleased to announce that one annual scholarship award in the amount of $2,000 will be presented at the NEEC Finals at the Eastern States Exposition Center on the weekend of October 20 – 24, 2021. The Scholarship has been made possible by the contributions and support of members, parents, patrons and friends of the NEEC to encourage junior and adult riders to seriously pursue education beyond the high school level. Candidates must have qualified for and compete in the 2021 NEHC Junior or Adult Medal Finals. 

The deadline for the receipt of applications is October 1, 2021. A panel of three will designate the recipient of the award, which is to be used solely for educational expenses. Applicants will have nine months from our 2021 Finals to tell  (Amy Eidson at or Cookie DeSimone at where they will be attending college, professional school, or another continuing education program.

New England Horsemen’s Council encourages junior riders to pursue education beyond the high school level and awards a $500 educational scholarship in the following four disciplines: Hunter Seat Equitation, Hunter Seat Pleasure Equitation, Saddle Seat Equitation, and Western/Reining Seat. Scholarships awards will be presented at the finals for each discipline. Candidates for the award must have qualified for the medal in the year of the final and be attending school. Selection will be based on the ability and aptitude for pursuing education beyond the high school level, community service, leadership and achievement with horses; less on financial need. Previous applicants who were not awarded the scholarship may reapply.

The deadline for  the application is October 1, 2021. If in the opinion of the Scholarship Committee, no applicant meets the standards as set by the Committee, the scholarship funds will be held within the NEHC Scholarship Account. NEHC furnishes each medal committee with a certificate to be awarded to the NEHC scholarship winners. Scholarship winners will have to present their transcripts with a 3.5 grade average to the administration office upon completing their first semester in post-secondary school. Scholarship will expire in five years unless letter of intent is received by the NEHC office. Please contact Dr. Kate Chope by email to
