Farm Bureau offers scholarships; March 1 deadline
Students planning to pursue careers as farmers, ranchers or in other agricultural occupations may apply for 2013 California Farm Bureau Scholarship Foundation scholarships.
The deadline to submit an application is March 1. Applications are available at www.cfbf.com/programs/scholar.
Applicants must be students who are Farm Bureau collegiate members in California. The scholarships are given based on students' academic achievements, leadership skills, career goals, extracurricular activities and other factors.
The foundation also grants six special scholarships, four in memory of former California Farm Bureau leaders and staff members and two donated by the Ag Lenders Society of California.
The California Farm Bureau Scholarship Foundation also helps oversee distribution of the Rustici Livestock and Rangeland Scholarship Awards, which benefit rangeland-management students who plan careers in beef or sheep ranching or in range management.
