The Dressage Foundation (TDF) is accepting grant applications from young professionals, ages 25-35, for the new George Williams Young Professional Fund. The Fund was established in December 2018 by Williams’ friends and colleagues to honor his years of dedication and service to the U.S. dressage community.
“We’ve been working with George over the past few months to establish the Fund’s purpose and guidelines,” said Jenny Johnson, TDF’s Executive Director. “Given his dedication to helping young adults, it is fitting that these grants will support young professionals who are committed to our sport.”
Williams shared, “I am honored to have a Grant Fund in my name, which will have a goal of helping up-and-coming young equestrians. Thank you to all the donors.”
Applicants should have established businesses as instructors and trainers and have a strong desire to participate in continuing education opportunities, in order to provide higher-quality instruction to their students. Grants will range from $3,000 - $5,000. Applications are due June 1st.
Information and the online application form can be found here.
