Full tuition for four years. Now nothing is holding you back.

The Odds On Racing Scholarship is a four-year, full-tuition scholarship award for new and transfer students entering this fall.

“This is an incredible opportunity for students who may have thought that attending the University of Arizona to prepare for a career in racing was financially out of reach” said Robert Hartman, chair of the Race Track Industry Program. “This scholarship covers all tuition costs of attending the UArizona’s Race Track Industry Program.”

The scholarship is thanks to a very generous donation from racing enthusiast and horse owner Dana Parham and is named for his standardbred racing operation, Odds On Racing Stable. Parham donated the funding for the scholarship to support an industry that he’s passionate about and has been involved with in a variety of areas over the years. Through this gift, he’s supporting the next generation of professionals who will steward the sport into the future.

“This award allows the best and brightest students, from any financial background, who are interested in racing to attend the University of Arizona and join the list of distinguished RTIP alumni,” said Hartman. Especially appropriate is the name of the scholarship – Odds On Racing. This gift will certainly allow the recipient to be the odds-on favorite to succeed in their career goals.
