Honouring The Voice Of Rodeo
The Bill Kehler Memorial Scholarships were established in 2003 by the Edmonton Rodeo Cowboy’s Benevolent Foundation and Northlands in honour of Bill Kehler. Known as the voice of Canadian Finals Rodeo, Spruce Meadows and the Calgary Stampede, Bill Kehler demonstrated a life-long commitment to rodeo, broadcasting and the agricultural industry.
Each $2,500 Scholarship Helps Further An Education
The Bill Kehler Memorial Scholarships are open to students who have completed grade 12 and are pursuing post-secondary education. Up to four scholarships of $2,500 are awarded each year. Scholarships are distributed to students with academic interests in broadcasting or agriculture. Individuals in professional rodeo can also apply for a scholarship to support their post-secondary studies.
