Youth Livestock Scholarships
The State Fair of Texas awards $5,000 scholarship to selected applicants who have participated in specific Youth Livestock competitive events held at the State Fair of Texas at Fair Park in Dallas. The scholarship is paid over four years, $625 a semester (Two payments of $312.50 each will be sent directly to your college or university). Scholarships are given to applicants who are enrolling in an agricultural-related curriculum or agricultural-benefiting natural science curriculum at a college or university in Texas.
Eligible high school seniors should note that these scholarships are for in-state schools only. No out-of-state scholarships are offered by the State Fair of Texas.
Established in 1992, the State Fair of Texas Scholarship Program has awarded approximately
$3 million in new and renewed scholarships. The fund is open to eligible high school seniors from
around the state who participate in State Fair livestock shows. Recipients receive a $5,000 grant, renewable in $1,250 annual increments if the student maintains a 3.0 GPA toward their college degree at a Texas university and/or community college.
