Cheshire County Farm Bureau is offering scholarship money to a Cheshire County resident who is pursuing a post high school education. The applicant or his/her family must be a member of Cheshire County Farm Bureau. This scholarship is available to all students, youth or adult, attending post-secondary school. Anyone can apply, even if he/she has been the recipient of the scholarship award in the past.
Any Cheshire County resident who is actively engaged in agriculturally related college education may apply for a scholarship each year that he/she is enrolled in college. Please provide your most recent semester transcripts, re-enrollment information and one letter of recommendation. You do not need the three additional references required of first time applicants.
Applications will be judged on the applicant's involvement in community and Farm Bureau, references, grades and financial need. Preference is given to those involved in agriculturally related studies.
The scholarship award will be announced in October. The funds will be awarded to the scholarship recipient in January 2021.
Completed applications and recommendations must be received by mail by September 1, 2020.
