The Cuyahoga Farm Bureau established the Betty Hansen Memorial Scholarship Program in 1992 to honor Betty Hansen for her leadership to the organization as a former president and board member of the Cuyahoga County Farm Bureau and her lifetime profession as a greenhouse farmer in Cuyahoga County.
The scholarship program is available to Cuyahoga Farm Bureau members and their dependent children who are interested in pursuing a college or advanced technical education.
A three-member scholarship committee reviews all applications submitted and selects the recipients using a point system based on Farm Bureau participation, career choice, school involvement and leadership, community service and grades.
In 2012, five recipients of the Betty Hansen Memorial Scholarship were awarded a total of $4000.00.
Deadline for submitting completed application is June 15 each year.
