Want to Contribute to the Scholarship Fund?
The Stampede Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit organization formed to support continuing education for Weld County students. The Greeley Stampede produces and hosts annual events, including the Big Buckle Ball, Western Art Show and the Stampede Golf Tournament, to benefit the scholarship fund. Since the inception of the program in 1994, the Stampede Foundation has given more than $637,500 in scholarships to over 595 Northern Colorado students.

Academic Scholarship Information

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.

Thanks to JBS and their Hometown Strong initiative, they have matched the Foundations $50,000 scholarship fund to total $100,000 to celebrate 100 years of the Greeley Stampede. This will make this year’s scholarships now worth $5,000 each!
