This scholarship is for current or former Minnesota 4-H members who will be entering their freshman year at a school in the University of Minnesota State Colleges and Universities System (Minnesota State) or University of Minnesota campus. There are two scholarships in the amount of $1,500 and are awarded annually. Selected recipients may re-apply annually, up to three times. A grade point average of 3.0 or above must be maintained in order for re-application to be approved. Maximum award for each student is $6,000. Award notices are distributed in June.
The review committee will evaluate applications based on financial need, reasons to attend college, career plans and goals, 4-H leadership and citizenship, major 4-H offices held, major 4-H projects, 4-H achievement, 4-H awards and recognition, letters of reference and additional community and school leadership and citizenship activities. The scholarship award check will be made payable to the institution that the recipient is attending, not to the recipient, but can be mailed to the recipient’s address.
