The College Preparatory Invitational Horse Show Scholarship Fund was created to award cash scholarships to student riders that display good citizenship, equestrian talent and academic excellence. The CPI scholarships encourage riders to educate themselves about the charitable organizations in their communities, lay emphasis on horsemanship and sportsmanship as key elements needed for equestrian success, and promote higher education as a foundation to future success in life.
It is the generosity of special donors to the not-for-profit CPI Horse Show Scholarship Fund that makes it possible to reward the student riders. All donations are acknowledged in our event program as well as with at letter of receipt from the CPI Scholarship Fund for the donor's tax purposes.
Currently the Fund accepts Three Types of Donations:
The CPI is continually looking for contributions to extend more award possibilities to the student riders. We will increase the value of the awards or add more awards to the upcoming shows as funds are received. CPI riders may be eligible to compete for 13 scholarship awards: The Essay Contest, The Champion of Service, The Horsemanship Test, the High Point Hunt Seat Rider, the High Point Dressage Rider. For more detailed information on these scholarships, please visit the CPI Scholarships Page on our website.
