Bill Owen, Cowboy Artist, Memorial Scholarship Fund, Inc.

Providing funds for educational programs beyond high school
for young people of the Arizona ranching community


Welcome to BOCA

Bill Owen (1942-2013) - Renowned artist and member of the prestigious Cowboy Artists of America, founded The Arizona Cowpuncher's Scholarship Organization, Inc. in 1995. Bill and ACSO were dedicated to raising monies in order to provide scholarships to young people of the Arizona ranching community, allowing them to further their education beyond high school graduation.

After Bill's passing, the Board of Directors voted to change the organization name to honor Bill and the legacy he has left behind for generations to come. Welcome to the website of Bill Owen, Cowboy Artist, Memorial Scholarship Fund, Inc. It is our hope that you will enjoy learning "All About BOCA" and join the many people who helped Bill's dream become a reality.
