Jockey Club Scholarships

The Jockey Club is initiating several scholarship opportunities for students to help them in achieving their goals. Applicants from any equine breed or discipline are welcomed to apply; preference will be given to candidates with the expressed desire to secure employment in the Thoroughbred industry. Students must be a resident of the United States, Canada, or Puerto Rico to be eligible.

The Club organized the award to provide students with the sufficient support they need for completing their higher education. The foundation has introduced a number of scholarships with different eligibility requirements for every student. The granted funds will be great enough to accomplish their educational expenses, including tuition, fees, book, etc.

The primary duty of the Jockey Club then and now is the preservation of The American Stud Book to ensure the reputation of the breed in the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico. The Jockey Club is a founding member of the International Stud Book Committee, which coordinates the policies and practises of more than 60 book bodies worldwide in order to harmonise the laws of various jurisdictions in order to promote cross-border trade.
