Orange County Go Texan is accepting scholarship applications at this time.

A scholarship application is a two-step process.

The first step is an online application followed by supplemental application documents.

Once one has submitted the online portion, the supplemental documents will be emailed to the applicant.

In order to qualify for a Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo scholarship, the guidelines below must be met.

One does not have to have shown an animal or participated as and exhibitor in order to qualify.

The only Show scholarships that require an applicant to have exhibited at the Show are the Ruth Hildebrand (for junior lamb exhibitors) and the School Art (participants in the school art program) and Exhibitor (participants in one of the 16 eligible shows), according to the official website.

One does not have to major in agriculture in order to qualify as long as the major leads to a four-year degree.
