Applications for the 2024 Pasadena Tournament of Roses® Royal Court presented by Citizens Business Bank are available August 1, on the Tournament of Roses website. The 2024 Royal Court members will each receive a $7,500 educational scholarship and serve as ambassadors of the Tournament of Roses, the Pasadena community and the greater Los Angeles area.
All are encouraged to apply and participate in one of the initial interview sessions at Tournament House on Saturday, September 9 or Monday, September 11. Participants are selected based upon a combination of qualities, including public speaking ability, youth leadership, academic achievement, and community and school involvement. Information about what to expect during the interview process and frequently asked questions can be found on the Tournament of Roses website.
Royal Court members experience countless benefits; becoming part of an organization dedicated to hands-on volunteerism, discovering opportunities to connect with and give back to the local community, developing public speaking skills and growing self-confidence. The Rose Queen® and Royal Court are iconic traditions, steeped in the Pasadena Tournament of Roses’ history and will continue as a treasured legacy.
