Scholarship Awards

The New York Farm Bureau Promotion & Education Committee is encouraging high school seniors who have been involved with agriculture and plan on continuing studies in this field to apply for the 2018 New York Farm Bureau Agricultural Youth Scholarship, which they sponsor.  Scholarship awards are $1,500 for first place $1,200 for second place and $1,000 for third place.  District winners will each receive $100 and a memento.  County winners are recognized at the discretion of their County Farm Bureau.


Students applying must have a family Farm Bureau membership or a Student Farm Bureau membership (a membership application may be included with scholarship enclosures).  Students are required to complete an application and submit a brief 500-word essay, the topic: Discuss an issue facing agriculture in your county. How do you think NYFB can support members who may deal with this issue? We suggest that they feel free to visit the NYFB website, to learn more about Farm Bureau. The application can be downloaded, completed and emailed to with all required attachments or mailed to NYFB, attention: Sandie Prokop. The application submission deadline is November 16, 2017.
