The Van Wert County Farm Bureau will award scholarships of $500 for the college year 2023. The scholarship award recipients will be recognized at the Van Wert County 2023 Farm Bureau Annual Meeting and will receive a scholarship check after grades are submitted from their fall quarter/semester in school.
The Van Wert County Farm Bureau will select recipients from the applications that meet the mandatory criteria. A scholarship selection committee, appointed by the Van Wert 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, agriculture and Farm Bureau 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 invest in the post-secondary education and career planning of young adults.
- To select recipients based upon merit, abilities and accomplishments.
If you need additional information, or have any questions/concerns, please contact the Van Wert County Farm Bureau office at 877-775-7642. Office hours are Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.
The complete scholarship application should be submitted online no later than March 31, 2023.
