High school students preparing for college and undergraduates majoring in agriculture should consider applying for NDFB scholarships.

“We have four scholarships available,” said NDFB Director of Organizational Development, Joey Myers. “We hope the range of scholarships will help students in various stages of their lives to receive a college education.”

The scholarships include one for students pursuing an agriculture major, students currently enrolled in an agriculture college, a Farm Bureau family member scholarship, and the Becki Palmer Scholarship for all high school seniors whose parents are members.

The scholarships are made possible through generous contributions made to the NDFB Foundation. Most of the funds for this year’s scholarships were generated by a successful live auction at the NDFB Annual Meeting.

To donate to the scholarship fund, please send your tax-deductible contribution to the NDFB Foundation, PO Box 2064, Fargo, N.D. 58107. Please indicate you would like your gift to go to the scholarship fund.

Scholarship applications are available on the Promotion and Education scholarship page. The applications are due no later than March 15, 2019. Applications will not be accepted postmarked after March 15.

Several county Farm Bureaus also have scholarships available for students in those counties. Some of them can be found on the bottom of the Promotion and Education scholarship page as well.
