March 31 is deadline for 2017 awards –
Adams County Farm Bureau (ACFB) is offering two $500 scholarships to 2017 graduating high school seniors who are the children, and/or dependents of Adams County Farm Bureau members.
“The Adams County Farm Bureau is pleased to offer these scholarship opportunities to the children of our Farm Bureau members,” said Joy Bauman, Chairperson of the ACFB Scholarship Committee, “We are committed to helping our local students further their education.”
According to Bauman, applicants are not required to have a farm background, nor are they required to major in agriculture.
“As long as the parents or guardians of the students are members of the Adams County Farm Bureau, the student is eligible.”
Evaluation of the applicants is based on academic achievement, school and community activities, and a brief essay about the impact of agriculture in their life.
If selected, students must send the Adams County Farm Bureau proof of full-time enrollment (twelve quarter-credit hours or semester equivalent credit hours) and at least a 2.5 grade point average after either their first or second college grading period. All grades must be received by May 31, 2018.
