Delaware high school students gearing up for careers in agriculture can now apply for scholarships through the Delaware Farm Bureau. 

The scholarships are offered by the DEFB’s Women’s Committee, Young Farmers & Ranchers Committee (YF&R) and the three county Farm Bureaus. Each group reviews submitted applications and offers scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $2,500 to awardees for the upcoming school year. 

To support the scholarship program, the Women’s Committee and YF&R each fundraise throughout the year. The Women’s Committee allocates some of the profits from its food booth at the annual Delaware State Fair in Harrington to the scholarship opportunities, while the YF&R hosts a Strawberry Festival in May at Bobola Farms & Florist in Dover and the annual Antique Tractor Pull in July at the Delaware State Fair to benefit the students. 

“The scholarship program is important to the YF&R because we want to promote education in young Delaware agriculturalists. We strongly believe in investing in the future of agriculture in Delaware,” YF&R State Chair Mollie Lynch said. 

Scholarship applications can be found online at and should be submitted no later than Friday, May 3 at 4 p.m.
