Indiana Farm Bureau cares about the future of our farming communities and those who will be - and are already - involved in the agricultural industry. We sponsor or co-sponsor several scholarships for college-bound youth, current college students and individuals seeking to enhance their careers in agriculture. We also give grants to members and county Farm Bureaus seeking to extend their education outreach in their communities.
Indiana Farm Bureau and the Farm Bureau Foundation will award 13 district and state college scholarships to high school seniors and college students for the current school year. Scholarships may be applied to tuition, housing, books and other educational expenses. Payment will be made directly to the college or university of your choice. The scholarships are the Marion Stackhouse Scholarship; two collegiate Farm Bureau scholarships available to members of the Collegiate Farm Bureau at Ancilla College, Huntington University, Purdue University and Vincennes University; and 10 Carolyn Hegel Memorial Scholarships (one per Farm Bureau District).
The 2020 application process is now closed.
