Indiana Farm Bureau is now accepting applications for its student scholarship program for the 2020-2021 school year.
Each year, the Indiana Farm Bureau awards 13 scholarships to incoming or current college students who are pursuing a career in agriculture. The scholarship that are being offered are the Marion Stackhouse Memorial Scholarship, two Collegiate Farm Bureau Scholarships and 10 Carolyn Hegel Memorial Scholarships. The scholarship money can be applied to tuition, housing, books and other educational expenses.
The Marion Stackhouse Memorial Scholarship is a $1,000 scholarship named after the former Indiana Farm Bureau president, who served from 1976 to 1987. The scholarship is awarded to one student annually based on educational successes and career aspirations.
The Carolyn Hegel Memorial Scholarship is a $500 scholarship named after the long-time Indiana Farm Bureau second vice president, who served the organization for 26 years. There are also 10 additional district scholarships that will be awarded.
Applicants for the Stackhouse scholarship and the Hegel scholarship must be incoming or current college students pursuing a degree in agriculture and members of Indiana Farm Bureau.
For existing collegiate Farm Bureau members, the Indiana Farm Bureau awards two $1,000 scholarships annually. Winners of these scholarships must be members of an Indiana Farm Bureau collegiate chapter at Purdue University, Vincennes University, Huntington University or Ancilla College.
The deadline to apply for these scholarships is March 1. The application asks students to detail their educational successes and answer several questions about their future educational and career goals.
