South Dakota Ag Connection - 02/22/2024

In an exciting opportunity for students with roots in agriculture, the South Dakota Farm Bureau (SDFB) is calling for scholarship applications. This chance is open to high school seniors and college students whose parents or guardians have been loyal SDFB members for at least two years.

The scholarships aim to support the next generation of agricultural and community leaders, with a final application deadline on March 1, 2024.

These scholarships are flexible, catering to students whether they are aiming for a four-year university degree or a two-year technical college certification.

Importantly, not just fresh high school graduates are eligible; SDFB encourages applications from students at any stage of their college journey.

The initiative has deep roots, established in 2005 by former SDFB president Richard Ekstrum and his wife, Agnes, to foster educational growth among members' families.

Richard's leadership from 1975 to 1995 was marked by a commitment to community and education, legacies that the scholarship fund continues to honor.

For those interested in applying, detailed instructions and the application form can be found on the SDFB website under the "Get Involved" section.

This scholarship program represents a significant support system for students with a background in agriculture, offering financial assistance to those looking to advance their education while remaining connected to their agricultural heritage.
