Austin, TX      Education


The Rodeo Austin Scholarship Program provides meaningful college scholarships to deserving Texas youth in need of financial support. Since the Rodeo Austin Scholarship Program began in 1981, Rodeo Austin has awarded $7.5 million to 2,345 Texas students.

Selection is based primarily on financial need, but also on academic achievement. Recipients come from all walks of life, many of which graduated at the top of their high school class! 61% come from a household income of $75,000 or less. While Rodeo Austin awards some agriculture related scholarships, most may pursue any degree plan at many Texas colleges or universities.

Scholarship funding is provided by proceeds from Rodeo Austin’s year round events, an endowment trust and donations from individuals. In 2016, Rodeo Austin awarded $512,000 to 34 students.

This RoomFunding project will provide 1 student with a 4-year Rodeo Austin scholarship.

Why We Like This Project

I remember how stressful it was to figure out how everything would be paid for when I was a student at UT. Financial obstacles shouldn't prevent students from getting their degrees. I love how the Rodeo Austin Scholarship Program helps recipients fulfill their dreams of graduating from college.
