MIAMI, Florida – October 19, 2015 – The College Preparatory Invitational (CPI) today announced that it has received six Travel Grants from the USHJA Foundation. These generous Travel Grants for up to $1,500.00 will be distributed among student riders attending 2016 College Preparatory events. The Travel Grants have been earmarked for riders traveling to either the Wellington, Florida CPI event in January and for those traveling to the Los Angeles, California event in March.
Interested student riders can access the application from the CPI Website at http://www.collegeprepinvitational.com/scholarships.html. Deadline for applications is November 30.
“We are so grateful to the USHJA Foundation for their continued support of the College Prep Invitational,” said CPI President, Lindsay Martin, “Our hope is that the six travel grants awarded by the USHJA will encourage student riders who might otherwise not be able to afford the travel to the CPI to fill out applications now that their travel might be subsidized.”
