ANNOUNCEMENT

New Reno Rodeo Foundation Western Arts & Culture Scholarship

Note: This video has been posted to spur your creativity and get your imagination juices flowing. It’s not intended to set a standard to which the Western Arts & Culture scholarship applicants must adhere too for selection purposes.

We’re excited to introduce the new Western Arts & Culture Scholarship.

The purpose of the Reno Rodeo Foundation Western Arts & Culture Scholarship is to create further awareness and appreciation of western arts, culture and heritage in college-age Nevadans through recognition of outstanding potential, contributions and skill in the creative arts.

The first place award is a $2,500 scholarship and the runner-up award is $1,000.  The two applicants selected will be awarded based on his/her level of skill in chosen area of arts/culture as well as completion of the additional addendum. This scholarship award will be made in addition to the Reno Rodeo Foundation Scholarship.

All applicants not selected for this scholarship will remain in the selection process for the general Reno Rodeo Foundation Scholarships.

The addendum requires applicants to answer four additional questions and submit three samples of art that support our rich western culture, tradition and heritage.
