Karl Giacomini Memorial Scholarship

Karl was part of the Cal Poly Rodeo Program in the late 1990s and early 2000s. We lost him tragically this past summer, and want to honor his memory for the hard work and dedication he gave to the Cal Poly Rodeo program throughout the years. This scholarship will be awarded each year to a student who demonstrates many of the qualities that Karl possessed, including going above and beyond to help with tasks around the rodeo arena.

Smooth Mouth Memorial Scholarship

Over the years, the Smooth Mouth group has lost a number of classmates, and so in memory of those who have gone before, they have set up a memorial scholarship fund to be used by the rodeo coach to help recruit a deserving student who will complement the rodeo team with their athletic talent and be a good representative of the university.

John McDonald Memorial Scholarship

John McDonald was part of Cal Poly Rodeo in the 1970s and was a member of the last Cal Poly National Men’s Championship Team. His rodeo talent led him to work both ends of the arena, and this scholarship is awarded each year to a student who does the same.
