The Franklin County Farm Bureau will award approximately $15,000 in scholarships for the 2015-2016 academic year.  Individual awards will start at a minimum of $500. The scholarship awards will be presented at the Franklin County Farm Bureau 2015 Annual Meeting to be held in August 2015.  

The Franklin County Farm Bureau will select recipients from the applications that meet the mandatory criteria. A scholarship selection committee, appointed by the Franklin County Farm Bureau board of trustees, will evaluate the scholarship applications and present their recommendations for the awards to the Board for approval.  From the applications, the committee will evaluate each candidate’s academic performance, agriculture involvement and activities. 

The application deadline this year is March 31, 2015. The amount varies depending on the committee's approval. Please see the attached application and general information letter. We have made a few changes on the rules and applications, please read and fill out carefully.
