New York Farm Bureau to Award Agricultural Youth Scholarships to High School Seniors


New York high school seniors who are graduating and interested in pursuing a career in agriculture can apply for New York Farm Bureau’s 2024 Agricultural Youth Scholarships. Eligible students can use the financial award for college or advanced training in the skilled trades. Statewide winners can earn up to $3,000 towards their future education.

The applicant or their family must be a New York Farm Bureau member, and the student must live and/or work on a farm or be involved with agriculture in the state. Applications need to be submitted online and will include a written essay.

Scoring will determine the district winners. Each district winner will receive $250 and then compete for one of two state scholarships worth $3,000 and $2,000, based on their submitted applications. Applications must be submitted by March 11, 2024. State winners will be announced by the end of May.
