Farm Focus Inc. offering scholarships

Farm Focus information

Farm Focus Inc. was founded in 1974 in order to promote agriculture in Van Wert County and the surrounding area. It is the organization’s continued mission to assist county students through a scholarship program that will enable them to pursue a degree in an agricultural related field.

Farm Focus logo 8-2014Farm Focus Inc. is offering three $1,000 scholarships to high school seniors interested in majoring in an agriculture-related program at a university, college, or technical school. In addition to high school seniors, full time students already enrolled in an undergraduate program in agriculture are also eligible to apply. This also means that a successful applicant last year can reapply again this year. The applicant must be a Van Wert County resident. Minimum grade point is 2.5 on a 4.0 scale.

Farm Focus Inc. will submit scholarship funds directly to the educational institution upon receipt of proof of enrollment or a copy of a tuition invoice.

Scholarship applications have been sent to all nine area high schools where Van Wert County students may be enrolled. Those wanting to apply can contact their high school guidance counselor or FFA instructor for a scholarship form.

Additional copies of the application are available at the OSU Van Wert County Extension office at 1055 S. Washington St. in Van Wert. Questions should be directed to the Extension office at 419.238.1214. All completed applications must be postmarked or delivered in person no later than March 20 to the Van Wert County Extension Office.
