The USEA has established an educational scholarship in memory of the late Roger Haller. Designed to provide financial assistance to a licensed official who is working towards promotion to the “R” license, the “S” license or the FEI licenses. The Roger Haller Scholarship may be used to offset the costs involved in attending the necessary seminars and obtaining the practical experience required to attain promotion to the next level of licensing. The USEA will award a scholarship of $5,000 to a qualified individual in 2018. The sport is in urgent need of well trained and committed officials who can serve at the highest international levels of the sport, a need that Roger was aware of and one that concerned him greatly. Increasing the pool of eventing officials was one of the reasons he devoted so much of his time to addressing the shortfall by developing the USEA’s educational programs for officials. We sincerely hope that this annual scholarship bearing Roger Haller’s name will help increase the number of eventing judges and technical delegates qualified to officiate internationally and so ensure the health of the sport for the future.
All those who meet the eligibility requirements listed below are invited to complete the scholarship application.
