By  | 

RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - The Reno Rodeo Foundation is accepting online applications for both its annual college scholarship program and its annual community grant program.

Since 1986, the foundation has endeavored to promote educational opportunities to all eligible Northern Nevada high school graduates. Over the years, the foundation has helped fund hundreds of students in furthering their education.

The Reno Rodeo Foundation is offering scholarships to eligible students interested in pursuing higher education at accredited Nevada colleges or universities, or at out-of-state colleges or universities if the declared majors are not offered in Nevada.

Additionally, the Foundation is offering a Western Arts & Culture Scholarship to encourage awareness and appreciation of western arts, culture and heritage in college-age Nevadans by recognizing outstanding potential, contributions and skill in the creative arts.

One $2,500 scholarship and one $1,000 scholarship will be awarded.
The two applicants selected will be awarded based on his/her level of skill in the chosen area of arts/culture, as well as completion of the additional addendum. This scholarship award will be made in addition to the Reno Rodeo Foundation Scholarship.

Online scholarship applications are open through Feb. 13, 2019.

Non-profit service agencies that are working to improve the quality of life for Northern Nevada children are invited to apply for funds through the Reno Rodeo Foundation Community Grants Program. Online grant applications must be received by Friday, January 11, 2019 at 5 p.m. to be eligible for consideration.
