Our Scholarship Program awards generous cash prizes to students enrolling in a college, university or trade school. Multiple $1,000 scholarships are awarded each year to graduating high school seniors.
The scholarship targets college-bound senior high school students graduating from public, private and charter high schools.
Are home-schooled students eligible to apply?
Yes, all students who meet college admissions requirements and will enroll in a school of higher education are eligible.
What about non-traditional students?
The inclusive competitive scholarship program reaches students at alternative education and adult vocational programs. Also, Florida International University students who volunteer their time and talent to work at The Youth Fair's performing arts division are eligible to receive a scholarship.
How does this program promote agriculture?
Certain scholarships are earmarked annually for students planning a career in agriculture related fields. The Youth Fair is a traditional county fair, a concept that originated in the 19th century as a way to promote modern farming.
