The Horsemen’s Benevolent & Protective Association of BC is pleased to announce the availability of the Peter Ellickson Scholarship Fund for the 2021-2022 year. Last year the program provided nine scholarship grants ranging from $1000 to $3000 each.
The HBPA of BC’s Peter Ellickson Scholarships are available to the organization’s members and to backstretch workers (trainers, grooms, hot walkers, exercise riders and pony riders) who derive their principal income at Hastings Racecourse. Immediate family members of the eligible individuals are also welcome to apply.
The scholarship program was created to honour Peter Ellickson, a former HBPA of BC board member and a strong education advocate. The HBPA of BC’s Scholarship Committee administers the program with final approval of all grants being the responsibility of the HBPA of BC’s board of directors.
