Senior Scholarships

The Interscholastic Equestrian League has been fortunate in past years to be able to award college scholarships to deserving riders. This is the IEL's way of saying thank you for the many years of support, congratulations on your accomplishments, and most importantly, to wish all of our members good luck in their future.

The "IEL Senior Scholarships" are designed to recognize the many wonderful qualities of our IEL riders, talented equestrians who have achieved success through athletics, academics, extracurricular activities, and/or given back to society through community service. Scholarship recipients will be announced at our year-end banquet (April 15, 2018), at which time they will be honored and presented with a monetary award to help them further their education.


Your complete application packet must be emailed or postmarked by April 1, 2018.

Applicants need to be aware that materials postmarked after the deadline and/or incomplete applications will not be considered. Applications can be scanned and emailed to iel@theiel.org and must be received by 11:59pm PST to be considered.
