One of the community pillars of the Reno Rodeo Foundation is supporting Northern Nevada high school graduates through educational scholarship.  Over one million dollars has been allocated to hundreds of young adults for more than thirty years.  This year marked a milestone, with the largest annual award, totaling $103,500, distributed to sixty-four deserving students; all of whom will be attending colleges and universities in Nevada.  Next year we proudly introduce a new category, the Reno Rodeo Foundation Western Arts and Culture Scholarship.  It’s an exciting opportunity for high-school students to share their interpretation of our western heritage through their creative expression that may include written material, musical delivery, dance, or visual art such as video, photography or painting.
