Jim Kirkham Scholarship

Beginning in 2016, one education scholarship applicant earned special recognition for an outstanding record of community service as the winner of the prestigious Jim Kirkham Scholarship.  Jim Kirkham’s tireless dedication to many equine organizations, including the Indiana Horse Council, the Indiana Horse Council Foundation and the Hoosier Horse Fair and Expo, are prime examples of community service at its best.  

Each scholarship recipient is required to submit a short summary of academic achievement in the course of study for which the scholarship was awarded and describe how the recipient benefited from the IHC Education Scholarship.
