Two $500 Adams County Farm Bureau scholarships available

Adams County Farm Bureau is offering two $500 scholarships to 2017 graduating high school seniors who are the children/dependents of Adams County Farm Bureau members.

It is not necessary that the applicant have a farm background or plan to major in agriculture. As long as the parents/guardians of the student are members of the Adams County Farm Bureau, the student is eligible.

Evaluation of the applicants will be based on academic achievement, school and community activities, and a brief essay about the impact of agriculture in their life. If selected, the student must send the Adams County Farm Bureau proof of full-time enrollment (12 quarter-credit hours or semester equivalent credit hours) and at least a 2.5 grade point average after either the first or second college grading period. All grades must be received by May 31, 2018.

The application form is available to download or by contacting the Adams County Farm Bureau office at 937-378-2212 or 888-378-2212.

Applicants must submit their completed application, a copy of their high school transcript, and a wallet size photo to the Adams County Farm Bureau, PO Box 288, Georgetown, OH 45121. All applications must be received by 4 p.m., Friday, March 31, 2017.
