The Brazos Valley Fair & Rodeo’s Educational Programs are a significant part of the BVFR's goals of benefiting youth, supporting education, and facilitating better agricultural understanding. All recipients of BVFR scholarships must demonstrate academic potential, leadership and financial need.
In 2017, the Brazos Valley Fair & Rodeo (BVFR) will award two, $1,500 General Scholarships to outstanding students who are seeking to earn a degree from an accredited college, university, or post-secondary institution. In addition the Fair has added increased scholarships through the livestock department to exhibitors who enter the Junior Livestock Shows during the Fair.
Since the first event in 2012 the Fair has awarded over $30,000 in Scholarship monies to qualified youth. The program initially awarded a portion Fair scholarships through the Texas 4-H Program but as Brazos Valley Fair has continue to grow the program has expanded and this year all Scholarships will be awarded directly through the Brazos Valley Fair & Rodeo Scholarship System.
The 2017 Brazos Valley Fair & Rodeo Scholarship Application is now closed. Check back in the coming weeks to see our 2017 Recipients.
