COVID-19 Update: In the best interest of the health and safety of our participants, we are planning to push back the date of the Maryland Thoroughbred Career Program (MTCP), originally scheduled for June 8-13. If you are a prospective applicant, please let us know what new date range you prefer by filling out this survey

We ask that you include your name/email so we are able to notify you of the new date range for the program, when it is confirmed. 

The application deadline for this year's program has been extended to June 19.

Launched in 2017, the Maryland Thoroughbred Career Program is an educational program presented by the Maryland Horse Industry Foundation (MHIF) that aims to:

  • Increase awareness of the diverse career options in the Thoroughbred industry
  • Give participants access to leaders of the Maryland Thoroughbred community
  • Highlight various paths for pursuing a career in the Thoroughbred industry
  • Address a critical need to attract and retain experienced and devoted employees

Over the course of a week, participants are encouraged to fully engage in the Maryland Thoroughbred industry and explore a multitude of career options. Graduates of the MTCP are eligible to apply for Career Development Funds, one-time funding that can be used to further career pursuits within two years after the program ends.
