Discover the Wild West Scholarship for Student Group Admission

In an effort to fully realize our mission of celebrating women, past and present, whose lives exemplify the courage, resilience, and independence that helped shape the American West, the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame is pleased to offer a scholarship providing complimentary admission to reach students and schools who would not ordinarily be able to participate, at any level, in our education programs.  It is underwritten by generous grants, specifically targeting low-income and/or under-performing schools, K-12. During the visit, students and teachers will be provided with an enriching docent-led tour and a take-home activity and information sheet.

Scholarship recipients must meet the criteria listed on the Student Group Admission Scholarship Application. It includes free admission for students, teachers, and adults designated as chaperons on the date of the scheduled visit to the Museum.
