Scholarship program available for Cuyahoga Farm Bureau members

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.
