  • Providing scholarships to deserving students. 

The Bill Pickett Memorial Scholarship Fund ("BPMSF") strongly supports education and benefits youth each year by providing scholarships to Black high school and college students involved or interested in pursuing careers in Rodeo or animal Science.  This special scholarship is awarded based on academic standing determination, student needs, community involvement and professional recommendations.

Your support will allow us to keep the legacy of our founder, Lu Vason, and his vision for the Bill Pickett Rodeo moving forward.
