ABOUT THE PROGRAM:
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 and to outstanding students
attending these Fair Park-area high schools: Lincoln, James Madison, North Dallas, Woodrow Wilson or the Irma L. Rangel YWL School. 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.
State Fair of Texas Scholarship applications are now available and can be downloaded via the links below. The application can be filled in online and printed out to mail with the required materials.
