The Delaware 4-H Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit organization formed to manage private funds in support of the 4-H youth development program in Delaware. As an educational organization, the foundation encourages young adults to pursue education and training beyond high school. Funds are available to support one or more scholarships offered for Delaware 4-H members to pursue higher education. This award is to recognize continued 4-H leadership.
To qualify, applicants must have completed five years as a 4-H member, with at least three of those in Delaware. Recipients must be high school graduates and be enrolled full-time at any two- or four-year institution of higher education for the fall or spring semester of the 2017-18 academic year. Applicants may be enrolled in any area of study. High school seniors will be evaluated separately from matriculated college students. Scholarships will only be awarded once per individual; those not awarded are encouraged to apply again.
Scholarship selection will be based upon 4-H leadership, 4-H involvement, school/extracurricular/community involvement, academic performance, and two letters of reference. Applications may be downloaded from the Delaware 4-H Foundation website (http://www.delaware4hfoundation.org). Please limit application information to space provided. Only current transcript and two (2) letters of reference may be attached. Incomplete application packages will not be considered.
