National High School Rodeo Foundation

General scholarship information procedures


A Partnership in Fostering Continuing Education

The National High School Rodeo Association (NHSRA) annually awards well over one-half million dollars in scholarships through achievements in the arenas at the National High School Finals Rodeo (NHSFR) and the National Junior High Finals Rodeo (NJHFR), as well as through various scholarship competitions, funded through the generosity of national sponsors and NHSRA budgeting and fundraising. Added to that total are over one-quarter of a million dollars in Merit Scholarships funded through NHSRA and awarded by the state and provincial associations with numbers of scholarships based on membership. The National High School Rodeo Foundation (Foundation) awards over $150,000 annually in scholarships through fundraising and the generosity of private donors. Current data totals $812,000 in scholarships awarded to NHSRA members in 2017.

Through fundraising and donations of named and memorial scholarships, the Foundation awards scholarships, at a minimum of $500 each, to all graduating NHSFR qualifiers who complete an application and written essay and who participate in a face-to-face interview. The Foundation welcomes donors who are interested in honoring or memorializing the works of others through named scholarships, as well as those who support the annual fundraisers of the Foundation at the NJHFR and the NHSFR.
