Need extra money for college?
Several scholarship opportunities are available for both high school and college students who are a part of a Texas Farm Bureau member family, Bandera County Farm Bureau President Barbara Mazurek said.
"Texas Farm Bureau offers these scholarships to help the next generation as they continue their education," Mazurek noted. "We know college can be expensive, and this is our way to help our member families and future leaders."
She also pointed out that TFB and county farm bureaus across the state collectively give more than $180,000 in scholarships each year.
In memory of former TFB President SM True, a $20,000 scholarship was established for college students who have declared agriculture as their major and have at least 60 hours of college credit.
The Dick Mitchell Scholarship awards $1,000 to one high school junior or senior who attended TFB's Youth Leadership Conference in Stephenville during the summer. Collegiate and high school students who would like to pursue a career in agriculture are encouraged to apply for TFB's Young Farmer & Rancher scholarship. Memorial and district scholarships are also available.
"We encourage all high school and college students in Bandera County to check out the scholarships and apply," Marurek said.
Application requirements are detailed on the scholarship page under the "Youth and Education" section of www.texasfarmbureau.org.
The deadline to apply is Friday, March 20.
