2018 Scholarship Application
The objective of the Cook County Farm Bureau® Foundation’s scholarship program is to provide scholarships to college students who major in agriculture, agribusiness, or an ag-related (or food and fiber) course of study. The General Scholarships are for members of Cook County Farm Bureau with the CONSERV FS scholarship being the exception to that guideline. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of exceptional scholastic ability and financial need. Awards will be sent to the school in recipient’s name and must be used for the 2018-2019 school year.
The application window for the 2018 CCFB Scholarship is now closed. Check back here for information about the 2019-2020 scholarship application details later this year.
