Scholarship applications available

scholarshipEach year the Delaware Farm Bureau Women’s Committee awards two scholarships. A $2,500 ag scholarship and another $1,000 scholarship are given to deserving senior high school or college aged students. The $2,5000 ag scholarship is awarded to a student who is majoring in or plans to major in the agricultural field. Numerous applications are received each year for the $2,500 scholarship. After a winner is chosen, the remaining applications are put into the pool of applicants for the $1,000 scholarship. After the State $1,000 winner is chosen, the remaining applications are sent back to the three county Farm Bureaus for their consideration for scholarship recognition. You must be a Farm Bureau member for at least one year to apply for either scholarship. All applications must be typed and submitted to the Farm Bureau State Office no later than April 15,2013. Please visit http://defb.org/Scholarships.html or call the State Office at (302) 697-3183 to obtain an application.
