The UK Ag Equine Programs Student Experience and Applied Education Fund was established to support and allow students to gain horse experiences both academically and recreationally at the University of Kentucky.

This fund is to be utilized to provide financial support for students to do a multitude of extracurricular activities, including, but not limited to, studying abroad, participating in or travel for equine educational trips, participating in one of our nine equine-related clubs and teams, as well as other equine-related educational and/or recreational opportunities.

In addition, this fund can be used to support undergraduate student capstone projects or to facilitate student involvement in undergraduate research.

UK Ag Equine Programs will review all ideas related to equine learning and activities.

Application Details: UK Ag Equine Programs anticipates awarding $3,000 in total to be utilized in 2022. This will likely be divided into multiple awards. Applications will not be considered for tuition, housing or other fixed costs associated with attending the university. Students may be reimbursed for expenses or Equine Programs may cover cost or pay an invoice on behalf of the student. All payouts for awards will need to be coordinated with UK Ag Equine Programs Business Officer PRIOR to encumbering expenses. We will not make direct awards to individual students or groups as it could affect overall financial aid, reimbursements are subject to review by the University Financial Office compliance team.

Application deadline extended to NOVEMBER 7, email final application to Danielle Jostes, Equine Philanthropy Director, email:danielle.jostes@uky.edu office: 859-218-1176.
