Cuyahoga County Farm Bureau is offering scholarship opportunities to students pursuing post-secondary education. The scholarship amount is determined by the number of acceptable qualifying applications.

Cuyahoga County Farm Bureau established the Betty Hansen Memorial Scholarship Program in 1992 to honor Betty Hansen for her leadership to the organization as a former president and board member of the Cuyahoga County Farm Bureau and her lifetime profession as a greenhouse farmer in Cuyahoga County. Details and the application process are available online. The fillable application form is available here, at our website, or by email.  

Another opportunity is the Cuyahoga Farm Bureau / Cuyahoga County Fair Partnership Scholarship. All criteria for the Partnership scholarship and application process can be found on the Cuyahoga Fair website or the Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation website. Deadline for this scholarship is July 1, 2022.

Both scholarship applications are online only. 

Eligibility and approval of applicants will be determined at the discretion of the Cuyahoga County Board of Trustees or their designee.

No handwritten forms will be accepted. 

Applications for the Betty Hansen scholarships must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. on March 31, 2022. For more information, contact the county Farm Bureau office at 440-877-0706.

I'm eternally grateful for the support Ohio Farm Bureau scholarships provided in helping me turn my dreams into reality.

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
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
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.

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.

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.
