Marilyn O. Heath Judges Education Fund
The purpose of The Marilyn O. Heath Judges Education Fund is to provide judge training scholarships to DVCTA members in good standing, and assist organizers in funding DVCTA sponsored dressage judge education programs. This fund is named in honor of Marilyn O. Heath, a long time DVCTA member, dressage rider, instructor, mentor and Chair of the USDF ‘L’ Education Program Committee for her enthusiastic commitment to improving dressage judging education in America.
Purpose - The purpose of the DVCTA Scholarship is to reward DVCTA members who have gone above and beyond in their volunteer service to DVCTA. DVCTA scholarships are awarded as contributions toward the cost of attending or participating in educational forums, clinics, and such. They are intended for members at any level and may be for dressage or jumping programs, or both. Both riding and non-riding educational clinics (such as judge’s clinics) are eligible for consideration.
Funds must be used for specifically stated objectives (i.e. clinic, riding camp, seminar, etc.) Scholarship money may not be used for regular lesson programs, tack, clothing, or show expenses. It is to be used for educational purposes only.
