Studying Ag In College? Check Out These Scholarships

Deadline is March 15 to apply for four stipends from North Dakota Farm Bureau.

College students pursuing a graduate degree, high school students preparing for college and undergraduates majoring in agriculture should consider applying for North Dakota Farm Bureau scholarships.

"We have four scholarships available," says NDFB Director of Special Programs Gail Bakko. "We hope that the range of scholarships will help people in various stages of their lives to get a better education."

The scholarships include one for graduate students, one for students pursuing an agriculture major, a Farm Bureau family scholarship and the Becki Palmer Scholarship.

"The Becki Palmer Scholarship is for high school seniors graduating in the spring. The scholarship was started to honor Farm Bureau employee Becki Palmer, who died of cancer," Bakko says. "She helped improve our scholarship program and believed whole-heartedly in educating people about the importance of agriculture and children's safety throughout the state."

Scholarship applications are available on the Promotion and Education scholarship page at The applications are due in the NDFB office in Fargo no later than March 15.

The scholarships are made possible through generous contributions made to the NDFB Foundation. To donate to the scholarship fund, please send your tax-deductible contribution to the NDFB Foundation, PO Box 2064, Fargo, N.D. 58107. Please indicate you would like your gift to go to the scholarship fund.
