All members of the Junior Rodeo Cowboys Association (JRCA) who will be attending college in the fall of 2024 or fall of 2025 are eligible for the JRCA scholarship. The applicant must have graduated high school, provided a high school transcript, as well as provided verification of enrollment at the college which they will attend to receive the award. Furthermore, the student must be enrolled in at least 12 semester hours. Scholarships will be paid in full upon receipt of official verification of enrollment and will be paid directly to the member. It is the scholarship recipient’s responsibility to secure the verification of the enrollment document and submit it with the application to Cheryl Robinson no later than the Dalhart Rodeo, June 16th. At least one $2,000 scholarship will be awarded; however, more scholarships may be awarded at the discretion of the JRCA Scholarship Committee depending on the amount of funding raised during the scholarship fundraising event to be held at the JRCA Finals. Applicants are required to participate in an interview conducted by the JRCA Scholarship Committee on July 10, 2024. Should two or more contestants be deemed equally deserving of the scholarship, precedence will be placed on the older applicant(s). The scholarship or scholarship(s) will be awarded during our End-of-Year Ceremony at the JRCA Finals. Members are welcome to apply for as many years as they meet eligibility criteria. However, once a member has been awarded a scholarship, he/she will no longer be eligible to apply. Please note additional details on the provided link.
