Accomplishment Resume Scholarship

Scholarship Value: $2,000
Awards Available: 30

The purpose of the 4-H Accomplishment Scholarship is to recognize youth who have excelled in life skills development through their 4-H activities and involvement. Categories include Animal Science – Meat and Milk Production; Animal Science – Companion and Small Animal Production; Citizenship; Communications; Engineering and Technological Science; Healthy Living, Food, and Nutrition Science; Leadership Development; and Plant and Environmental Science. Three additional categories are reserved for applicants demonstrating life skills development in more than one of the previously listed categories. Those are Premier Achievement, Premier Citizenship, and Premier Leadership.


Applicants must be in grade 10, 11, 12, or their first year immediately following 4-H enrollment eligibility at the time applications are due. While an applicant does not have to be a current 4-H member, they must demonstrate multiple years of involvement in Indiana's 4-H Youth Development Program.

Youth who have previously been awarded a $1,000 accomplishment scholarship are only eligible to compete in the Premier Achievement, Premier Citizenship, and Premier Leadership categories.

Youth who have previously been awarded a $2,000 scholarship are no longer eligible to compete in any category.

How to Apply

Submit a 1-page cover letter, a 1- to 2-page life skills resumé related to that category, and a demographic/application page. Minimum font size of 10 is to be used on the cover letter and life skills resumé.

Completed applications are due January 25 and must be submitted electronically in PDF format through 4HOnline or delivered to the County Extension Office on an electronic storage media device (flash drive, etc.). A number of free PDF converters are available on the internet. The local Purdue Extension Office can also convert documents to PDF format. The required information for each completed application is to be included in one (1) electronic file.

Applicants who are in their first year immediately following 4-H enrollment will need to have their county educator establish a "contact" account in 4HOnline.

Each applicant may enter a maximum of 3 categories as defined in this packet. Applicants must demonstrate how their involvement in Indiana 4-H Youth Development subject matter and events/activities helped develop life skills in that specific category; thus, a single application cannot be used to enter multiple categories.

Finalists to be interviewed in each category will be selected by the scholarship committee. Only youth completing the interview process will be eligible to receive a scholarship award.
