The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo has committed more than $500 million to Texas youth and education. Each year, the Rodeo awards more than 800 scholarships. In the fall, the Rodeo committed to award $14.2 million in scholarships, $3.7 million in educational program grants and $662,000 in graduate assistantships in 2020. The Rodeo will honor these commitments.
At the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo™, the safety and wellbeing of our scholars is our top priority. Due to COVID-19 and the recommended safety measures from medical professionals, recognizing our 2020 Rodeo scholars will look different this year. While we will not be able to honor these outstanding individuals in person at our annual Scholarship Banquet, we will recognize them through a virtual announcement via our social media outlets on July 23, 2020. Please stay tuned for additional details.
The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo™ scholarship application is completed entirely online. Applicants will upload supplemental documents when completing the online application. Then, a school official or counselor will complete a second portion of the application online.
In order to qualify for a Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo scholarship, all minimum requirements must be met.
