I'm interested in the Georgetown program because it offers a $1,000 scholarship, it helps with career and internship placement, and it is not a specialized degree. Although I'd love to major in equine science, I just can't afford to pay for a degree that is not 100% reliable. I need a back up plan. I probably will end up majoring in biology.
And of course another plus about this school is that it is located in Georgetown, Kentucky! Horse country! Georgetown is also putting together an equestrian team.
Hopefully during summers I can find a working student position at a local barn as well.
This is the website: Equine Scholars Program
They also have a Facebook page called Georgetown Equine Scholars.
If you've participated in this program or know anyone who has, I'd love to hear about your experience with it. Thanks!
