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 2020, the Brazos Valley Fair & Rodeo (BVFR) will award three, $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 youth exhibiting in the Junior Livestock Shows during the Fair.

Since the first event in 2012 the Fair has awarded over $45,000 in Scholarship monies to qualified youth. The program initially awarded a portion of Fair scholarships through the Texas 4-H Program but as the Brazos Valley Fair has continued to grow the program has expanded and since 2017 all Scholarships are awarded directly through the Brazos Valley Fair & Rodeo Scholarship System.

Due to the COVID 19 outbreak, we are extending our scholarship deadline to April 16, 2020. Applications must be mailed or emailed to by the deadline. No applications will be allowed to be hand delivered to the office. Also due to the closures of school, we are not currently requiring an official copy of the students transcript. Students must either provide a copy of the most recent report card or transcript they have. BVFR Staff will contact the school for verification.
