Beginning with the Pageant held in 2014 the Miss Rodeo America Scholarship Foundation, seeking additional ways to help our contestants, has formed partnerships with several Colleges and Universities. These partnerships provide an additional benefit to the contestant should she choose to go to one of these schools. Our goal is to have a school in every state that is participating. Each partnership with a college or university is unique to that school. Some specify who is eligible and some specify what course of study the student must be pursuing. The student, in each case must be “normally” admitted to the college or university. Once this happens she will be put in contact with the partnership coordinator at the school to pursue the benefit.
