The Louisiana Quarter Horse Breeders' Association will award a total of $15,000 in scholarships at Evangeline Downs on Saturday, December 17.
The scholarships will be awarded to Louisiana students seeking to further their education. Students and their families are invited to enjoy the racing and festivities on December 17, LQHBA Louisiana Million night. All high school graduates and seniors graduating in 2023 wishing to attend a higher education institution are eligible. A registration table will be located on the main level of the racetrack from 5:00–6:45 p.m. Students must be present for the drawings of one (1) $5,000 scholarship and five (5) additional $2,000 scholarships, which will take place following race four.
"The LQHBA Scholarship Fund is an important program for our association,” said LQHBA executive director Bruce Salard. “There is a rich tradition of family involvement in Louisiana Quarter Horse breeding and racing. We continue to be strongly committed to supporting students as they further their education.”
The LQHBA scholarship program has provided financial aid for students since 2001. The program is supported by LQHBA membership, its board members, and funding from the Stallion Owners donating a season to the annual LQHBA Stallion Auction. Nearly $800,000 has been earmarked for this program since its inception. For further information on the LQHBA Scholarship program, visit www.LQHBA.com or call (318) 487-9506.
