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 145 scholarships—for a total of $219,500—to assist graduating seniors in their first year of college.

In 2016 we will award five $2,000 scholarships to applications nominated by the parish Farm Bureaus. Four 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 scholarship will be awarded through a random drawing from our remaining parish winners. Scholarships will be awarded in two $1,000 payments to qualifying winners
 

2016 Scholarship Eligibility Requirements

  • Applicants or their parents must be members of Louisiana Farm Bureau Federation.
  • 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 2015.
  • Applicants must attend an accredited college or university in Louisiana during the fall and spring semesters immediately following graduation from high school.
  • Applicants must pursue a curriculum in agriculture, vocational agriculture, agribusiness, agriscience, 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.
