The Kentucky Equine Education Project (KEEP) and The Race For Education are proud to announce their 2019 scholarship recipients.

The KEEP Foundation Board of Directors approved nearly $60,000 in scholarships to 21 students, attending 10 universities across the Commonwealth. 14 of the 2019 scholarship recipients are students currently enrolled with a university or college in Kentucky in an equine and/or agriculture related major or a horse-related program.

“KEEP works in Frankfort and Washington to ensure that Kentucky's horse industry continues thriving. However, the true future of the industry depends on the next generation of talent who will bring hard work, creativity and new ideas to the table. Having this group of quality students interested in equine careers from all across Kentucky demonstrates that the industry's future will be in good hands. KEEP and the Race for Education are honored to work with these students”, said Elisabeth Jensen, KEEP's Executive Vice President.
