Tagged for Greatness scholarships. Four $1,000 scholarships will be awarded to college students enrolled in an agricultural program, or graduating high school seniors who plan to study agriculture at a college or university. These scholarships are made possible by the sale of Ohio’s beef specialty license plates.

Four $1,000 scholarships will be awarded to college students enrolled in a two-year or four-year program, or graduating high school seniors who plan to attend a college or university majoring in an agricultural or nonagricultural program.

Noah Cox Memorial scholarship. One $1,000 scholarship will be awarded to a college student who is enrolled in a two-year or four-year program, or a graduating high school senior who plan to attend a college or university majoring in an agricultural or nonagricultural program.
