The California Rodeo Salinas is excited to offer two scholarship programs in 2021. The California Rodeo Association has been passionate about supporting youth education since 1986 when a scholarship program was established with Hartnell College. In 2021, students who are attending or graduating from Hartnell can still apply for that scholarship. Our new scholarship program allows students who are California Rodeo Salinas Committee Members or related to Committee Members to apply through the Community Foundation for Monterey County, and they can use the scholarship money to attend any college or other post high school education program, including trade school. The Hartnell and Community Foundation Rodeo scholarship programs will each award multiple scholarships with varying amounts allocated to each student who earns an award.
·Applications for the Hartnell College scholarships are due by March 2, 2021.
·Applications for the Community Foundation for Monterey County scholarships are due by March 15, 2021.
·Full eligibility details as well as links to both applications can be found at https://www.carodeo.com/p/about-us/community/scholarships.
Donations to the Community Foundation scholarship fund are welcomed and not limited to cash; examples might include coin collections, vehicles or property. Visit https://www.cfmco.org/give-now/?fund=12144 to donate.
