Scholarship Program

Youth Scholarship Program

Established in 1992, the State Fair of Texas Youth Scholarship Program has awarded scholarships to more than 2,000 students for a total of more than $10 million. Eligible recipients include graduating high school seniors around the state of Texas who have participated in competitive youth livestock events held at the State Fair, as well as graduating seniors from five Dallas Independent School District high schools in the Fair Park area. Recipients receive a $6,000 grant, renewable in $1,500 annual increments if the student maintains a 3.0 GPA while working towards a degree at a Texas college or university.

Pete Schenkel Scholarships

Honoring its past Chairman Pete Schenkel each year, the State Fair of Texas awards multiple $6,000 scholarships to selected applicants from the following Fair Park-area high schools: Irma Lerma Rangel Young Women’s Leadership School, James Madison, Lincoln, North Dallas and Woodrow Wilson High Schools.


Youth Livestock Scholarships

The State Fair of Texas awards $6,000 scholarships to selected applicants who have competed in specific competitive youth livestock events held at the State Fair. Scholarships are given to applicants who are graduating from a Texas high school and are enrolling in an agricultural-related or agricultural-benefiting natural science curriculum at a Texas college or university.

Seasonal Employee Scholarship

Beginning in 2017, the State Fair of Texas Seasonal Employee Scholarship will award at least one scholarship each year to seasonal staff members directly employed by the State Fair of Texas or to a dependent child, step-child, grandchild, step-grandchild, foster or adopted child of the qualified seasonal employee. This scholarship is available for applicants who plan to attend an accredited two-year or four-year Texas college, university, or vocational-technical school. Eligible seasonal staff are those who have completed at least three years of seasonal employment as of January 1st of the year in which the scholarship is to be awarded, and have worked an average of 20 hours a week during the prior Fair. Recipients receive a $6,000 grant, renewable in pre-determined increments (paid by semester or term) if the student maintains a 3.0 GPA while working towards the completion of an eligible degree.
