For over 60 years, Kentucky Farm Bureau has been assisting students in their educational pursuits. Since its inception in 1953, the Kentucky Farm Bureau Education Foundation has distributed over $3 million dollars of scholarship money to more than 2,000 deserving students.
The 2021 Kentucky Farm Bureau scholarship rules for eligibility and link to start the application process can be found online at www.kyfb.com/federation/youth-development/scholarships/.
Please note there is only one application for all scholarship awards. When submitting an application, please include all materials that are requested. I would encourage you to distribute the scholarship application website to eligible seniors in your county. Please be aware that for most of the scholarships, the student does not have to be from a farm family. The exception is the Leadership in Agriculture Scholarship. For more information and a complete list of available county and state scholarships refer to the link above.
All applications must be submitted by February 28, 2021, to be considered. Winners will be notified by May 21, 2021.
The Kentucky Farm Bureau Education Foundation scholarship application will also be sent to every accredited high school in Kentucky. Your cooperation in promoting Farm Bureau’s scholarship program in your community is greatly appreciated.
