The Greene County Farm Bureau may award up to one $1,500 scholarship for the 2022-2023 academic year. The scholarship recipient will be recognized at the Greene County Farm Bureau 2022 Annual Meeting to be held in August.

Recipient will be selected from applications that meet the mandatory criteria. A scholarship selection committee, appointed by the Greene County Farm Bureau Board of Trustees, will evaluate the scholarship applications and interviews. Then they will present their recommendations for the award to the Board for approval. From the applications deemed valid, the committee will evaluate each candidate’s academic performance, agricultural involvement and activities.

The purpose of the scholarship program is:
  • To financially assist and reward a college-bound high school senior and/or college enrolled student who intends to further their education.
  • To recognize the present and future scholastic ability of young adults.
  • To provide scholarships for graduating seniors and/or students pursuing undergraduate degrees. Preference will be given to those enrolled in an agricultural or agriculturally related field of study and who are under the age of 25 at the time of application.
  • To select recipients based upon merit, abilities, and accomplishments, who are either active members or children of active members, with preference given to those who are active in agriculture-related activities, and those majoring in an agriculture-related field.

Financial need does not enter into the selection process, and financial information is not requested for the scholarship application.

For additional information, please contact the Greene County Farm Bureau at 937-382-4407, [email protected]. Office hours are Mondays-Thursdays, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Labor has always been an issue, mainly because we are a seasonal operation. So that's a challenge finding somebody who only wants to work three months out of a year, sometimes up to six months.

I appreciate the benefit of having a strong voice in my corner. The extras that are included in membership are wonderful, but I'm a member because of the positive impact to my local and state agricultural communities.

Strong communities
I see the value and need to be engaged in the community I live in, to be a part of the decision-making process and to volunteer with organizations that help make our community better.

Leadership development
Farm Bureau involvement has taught me how to grow my professional and leadership experience outside of the workforce and how to do that in a community-centric way.

With not growing up on a farm, I’d say I was a late bloomer to agriculture. I feel so fortunate that I found the agriculture industry. There are so many opportunities for growth.

Growing our Generation
Knowing that horticulture is under the agriculture umbrella and having Farm Bureau supporting horticulture like it does the rest of ag is very important.

If it wasn't for Farm Bureau, I personally, along with many others, would not have had the opportunity to meet with our representatives face to face in Washington.

So many of the issues that OFBF and its members are advocating for are important to all Ohioans. I look at OFBF as an agricultural watchdog advocating for farmers and rural communities across Ohio.
