Delaware County Farm Bureau is awarding $3,000 in scholarships to graduating seniors for 2016. The scholarship awards will be presented at the Delaware County Farm Bureau 2016 Annual Meeting to be held in August. Two types of scholarships are available. The Agriculture Scholarship is available for students pursuing a degree in agriculture. Two scholarships will be awarded at $1,000 each. The Friend of Agriculture Scholarship is for students pursuing any other type of degree. One scholarship will be awarded at $1,000.
Delaware County Farm Bureau will select recipients from the applications that meet the mandatory criteria. A scholarship selection committee, appointed by the Delaware 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, activities, and agricultural involvement where applicable.
The committee reserves the right to schedule an interview with the applicant(s) if the committee deems it necessary to do so in the decision-making process.
Financial need does not enter into the selection process and financial information is not requested for the scholarship application.
