Today, Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo officials awarded several Houston-area community colleges and technical institutions with $200,000 in Vocational Scholarships for the 2021-2022 academic year.

Each program that receives educational funding through the Rodeo’s Vocational Scholarship Program will manage the selection and distribution of its scholarship funds. The seven Houston-area colleges that received funding include Houston Community College, Lamar Institute of Technology, Lee College, Lone Star College, San Jacinto College, Texas State Technical College and Wharton County Junior College.

“The Rodeo understands the significant demand for vocational skills in today’s environment, and we are committed to supporting these students as they pursue a nontraditional education,” said Chris Boleman, Rodeo president and CEO. “These schools offer vocational and trade school programs that will help students develop the technical skills and training needed to stay competitive in specialized fields.”

These Vocational Scholarships represent a portion of the Rodeo’s annual commitment to Texas youth and education. Since the Vocational Scholarship Program began in 2015, the Rodeo has allocated more than $1.4 million to this program. In 2021, nearly $21.7 million has been committed to scholarships, junior show exhibitors, educational program grants and graduate assistantships. Since 1932, the Rodeo has committed more than $500 million to the youth of Texas and education.
