Boyd County Farm Bureau 2018 college scholarship application now available

 

Boyd County Farm Bureau will award a scholarship to an outstanding graduating senior of a Boyd County School. It is our intention to give recognition to a student who has contributed to the leadership of school and community and has indicated a strong desire to continue educational endeavors. The student must be a member of a family that holds membership in Boyd County Farm Bureau.

The amount of the scholarship shall be $1,500 (divided between terms of a year of post high school education) and may be used at any college or post high school vocational training program. The recipient may be eligible to apply for continuance of the scholarship if certain requirements are met.

These applications will only be available from the high school counselors.
