Brown County Farm Bureau offers scholarships

The Brown County Farm Bureau Board of Trustees is pleased to announce the ability of funds to award up to five (5) $500 scholarships to 2017 high school graduates.

Scholarship selection will be based on agricultural interests, scholastic achievements, financial need, and Farm Bureau participation.

If the parents are not Brown County Farm Bureau members, the student must be planning to major in agriculture at a college or university. This restrictive major requirement is waived if the parents are Brown County Farm Bureau members. *Post secondary technical training in agriculture will also be considered.

The selected scholarship winners must, after completing one or two grading periods of college course work, send a copy of their transcript to Brown County Farm Bureau. This transcript should show the student is a full-time student (12 quarter credit hours or semester equivalent credit hours) with at least a 2.5 grade point average after wither the first or second grading period.

Complete guideline and application forms are available from all Brown County high school guidance counselors, Vo-Ag instructors, and the Farm Bureau office.

Completed applications must be received in the Farm Bureau office by 4 p.m., Thursday, March 30, 2017. These may be hand delivered to 325 West State Street, Georgetown, mailed to Brown County Farm Bureau, PO Box 288, Georgetown, OH 45121 or emailed to [email protected] (please ask for a read receipt if emailed.)
