Louisiana Farm Bureau Foundation

 

The Louisiana Farm Bureau Foundation is a tax-exempt foundation created to support students pursuing careers in agriculture. The foundation awards several deserving students with scholarships annually.

Since the first two scholarships were awarded in 1993, the Louisiana Farm Bureau Foundation has awarded 125 scholarships—for a total of $179,500—to assist graduating seniors in their first year of college.

In 2014 we will award ten $2,000 scholarships to applications nominated by the parish Farm Bureaus. Six of these scholarships will be awarded to the highest-scoring applicants based on grade point average, ACT scores, individual achievement in high school, participation in parish and state Farm Bureau activities and financial need. The remaining four scholarships will be awarded through a random drawing from our remaining parish winners.
 

2014 Scholarship Eligibility Requirements

  • Applicants must have a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or better for 4 years of high school.
  • Applicants must be graduating from high school in the spring of 2014.
  • Applicants must attend an accredited college or university in Louisiana during the fall and spring semesters immediately following his or her graduation from high school.
  • Applicants must pursue a curriculum in agriculture, vocational agriculture, agribusiness, agriscience, home economics or other curriculum directly benefiting the agricultural sector of Louisiana’s economy.
  • A scholarship winner must earn a grade point average of 2.5 or better during his or her first semester of college and maintain a major course of study in agriculture for the second semester in order to receive the second half of the scholarship award.

If you qualify, obtain an application from your local Farm Bureau office, complete it and return it to the same office. Each parish will select one applicant to be submitted for consideration as a state winner. 
 

2014 Scholarship Application Deadlines

Scholarship applications must be submitted to your local Farm Bureau office by February 28, 2014. (The deadline for parishes to submit applicants to the State Office is March 14, 2014.)
