Frederick County Farm Bureau is offering two scholarships to youth in the county.
One opportunity is for a person majoring in an agricultural area of study, and the other is for a person majoring in a non-agricultural area of study. Applications are due to Beth Ahalt at email@example.com by April 30 and must be typed.
Applicants must be graduating high school seniors planning to attend — or students currently attending — “an accredited undergraduate college or university, accredited vocational or trade school or community college,” according to the applications.
For the ag-major scholarship, criteria include majoring in an agricultural area of study, showing excellence in academic achievement, a statement of education goals, and involvement in the community, leadership and extracurriculars.
A high school or college transcript and two letters of reference are required.
For the non-ag major scholarship, criteria are similar but include being a member or a dependent of a member of the farm bureau majoring outside of an agricultural field.
Applications include short-answer responses about the applicant’s plans during college, other scholarships they’ve applied for and past or present employers as well as short essay responses about personal, school and community activities.
