Lucas County Farm Bureau offers numerous scholarships to qualifying students. Four $1,000 active member scholarships are available: The William Carstensen Scholarship, The Walter Heilmann Scholarship, The Kenneth Bostelman Scholarship and The Raymond Cedoz Scholarship. These scholarships were established in honor of these gentlemen who shared their enthusiastic and dedicated leadership to the Lucas County Farm Bureau.
The Lucas County Board of Directors also offers two $500 associate member scholarships. Each scholarship recipient will also receive a membership to the Lucas County Farm Bureau.
The deadline to apply is April 1.
In order to be eligible for a scholarship, parents or a legal guardian must be a Lucas County Farm Bureau member for three years prior to the application process or have attended a summer Farm Bureau Youth Conference.
Applicants must submit two letters of recommendation, official transcript of grades (please send the two most recent years) and a photograph. If any of these things are not included, the application will not be considered.
Applicants must be either enrolled as a full time student in a two- or four-year college/university as an undergraduate or graduate student. Please note priority will be given to those majoring in an agricultural or environmental related area.
Recipients of past scholarships may reapply for any of these scholarships annually.
