Scholarships are a tool to bring monetary substance to the table for a young lady to be a Wrangler Belle. After making the team and receiving your scholarhship you do not have to audition again for the team. After each semester, every Belle will have an individual meeting with the director. The director will discuss any concerns or suggestions with the Wrangler Belle so that she may improve herself as a team member. Each Belle must understand that dancing is not only a hobby or recreational activity, but also a job. You must fulfill your responsibility to remain eligible for your scholarship which includes:
- Abiding by the rules of the constitution
- Maintaining 12 credit hours with a 2.0
- Showing a passion/respect for dance, the Belles, and fellow team members.
A Belle may be relieved of her membership and scholarship if any of these criteria are questioned.
