Since 1992, Sisters Rodeo Association has granted over $142,000 in college scholarships to Sisters High School graduates. Each year the board of directors appoints a selection committee and invites those graduating High School Seniors for a personal interview with the panel to discuss their educational and career goals. Three winners are selected each year and are awarded $2500 each to help with the financial costs of furthering their educational goals.
In 2010 we partnered with the Sisters GRO (Graduate Resource Organization) and together we have awarded more than 30 students in the last 12 years with over $75,000. GRO helps in the process of distributing the funds to the college of the student’s choice. Their goal is to have each student who is graduating from Sisters High School earn a scholarship.
