Huron 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.
Applicant’s parent/legal guardian or themselves must be a resident of Huron County, and a current Huron County Farm Bureau member at the time of application and payout. They must be a full-time enrollee of an accredited two or four-year college, university, or technical school working toward an undergraduate degree. Applicants must show a 2.5 grade point average.
An Ag-Related Scholarship and a Continuing Education Scholarship are both available. A major in agriculture or a support field is required for both scholarships. Multiple scholarships can be awarded. Eligibility and approval of applicants will be determined at the discretion of the Huron County Board of Trustees or their designee.
No handwritten forms will be accepted.
The Huron County Farm Bureau will sponsor grants from $25 to $250 to teachers from any grade level in a Huron County School. The total amount awarded countywide will be up to $1,250.00.
The grant is for the teaching of agriculturally related subjects. Agriculture is defined as ‘the science, art or occupation concerned with cultivating land, raising crops, and feeding, breeding, and raising livestock; farming, the production of crops, livestock or poultry, or agronomy’. Some sample lesson ideas are technology in agriculture, agriculture safety, maximum farmland usage, and the effects of global warming on crop production. Some suggested uses for the grant money would be books, videos, lab materials, workshops or field trips.
