Art Carpenter was involved in the promotion and judging of Paint horses, also educating the youth in the benefits and camaraderie of showing and caring for Paints. The Kansas Paint Horse Association is proud to continue his work through the scholarship founded in his name and to add a scholarship of its own to further aid its members in achieving their educational goals.
Both the Art Carpenter and KPHA scholarships were established to assist students in the Kansas Paint Horse Association in achieving their educational goals. The scholarships, in the amount of $500, must be applied for annually. The Art Carpenter scholarship is available for use at a junior college or university, while the KPHA scholarship may be used by an adult returning to school and for vocational trade schools.
Applications are due July 1 of each year and will be awarded with a formal presentation at the annual awards banquet."
