The California Farm Bureau Scholarship Foundation was organized to give aid to students with a desire to pursue a career in the agricultural industry. The scholarships are awarded annually based upon academic achievement, career goals, extracurricular activities, determination, leadership skills, and a commitment to study agriculture. In the spring, a group of finalists will be selected to be interviewed by the foundation board. Finalists will be notified of the date, time and place of the interview in the notice of selection. Finalists should understand that they will have only a few weeks' advance notice of the interview date. Students are not required to be members of the farm bureau. Students entering or attending a junior college are not eligible.
Applications are available on the California Farm Bureau Federation website by clicking the 'Scholarship Foundation' link under the 'Programs' heading. Applications are accepted between Jan. 1 and Mar ... sign up for full scholarship deadline information.
