Scholarship Program

The Heart O' Texas Fair & Rodeo awarded $153,000 in scholarships to 48 Central Texas students in 2019 at the Scholar Recognition Banquet, underwritten by Alliance Bank Central Texas. This continues the Fair & Rodeo's tradition and mission of giving back through youth scholarships.

These scholarships are part of the Heart O’ Texas Fair & Rodeo’s annual commitment of providing scholarships to Central Texas students which is made possible thanks to our sponsors and volunteers. Each year, our volunteers spend countless hours raising money through various fundraisers to contribute to this fund. Since its beginning, the Heart O’ Texas Fair & Rodeo has committed more than $3 million to the youth of Central Texas.
