Weld County high school seniors who meet general qualifications and are scheduled to graduate in the spring are encouraged to apply. Scholarship recipients will be selected based on their outstanding academic results, leadership in the community and plans to further their education. Recipients of the scholarship may use the scholarship at any accredited trade school, college or university.

In 2019, the Stampede Foundation awarded thirty $2,500 general scholarships, two art scholarships, one rodeo scholarship and a scholarship for Miss Rodeo Colorado.
