HCCF agricultural scholarship applications available online
Agriculture helps keep civilizations and economies thriving. It has given people all over the world food to eat, clothes to wear, and employment opportunities, among other things. Agriculture has especially been an important part of Harrison County’s past, present and future.
With this in mind, the Harrison County Community Foundation (HCCF) has two agricultural scholarship applications available on hccfindiana.org on the Scholarships page in the Our Work tab.
One of these scholarship applications is the 2019 Herbert and Marilyn Gettelfinger Agricultural Scholarship application. The late Herbert Gettelfinger was a lifelong farmer and businessman, founding and co-owning Speedy-Pop Popcorn. The Herbert and Marilyn Gettelfinger Agricultural Scholarship Fund was created to provide scholarships for students who shared Herbert Gettelfinger’s passion for agriculture.
Applicants can be studying in a wide variety of agriculture-related academic programs, such as diesel mechanics, agricultural finance and business, ergonomics and horticultural sciences, or others. Applicants must have successfully completed at least 24 hours of college credit with an accumulated GPA of at least 2.5 to apply, and they must have been residents of Harrison County on the date of their high school graduation. Students who apply for the scholarship may be in an associate’s, bachelor’s, master’s or doctorate degree program.
The other agricultural scholarship application available through HCCF is the 2019 Harrison County Farm Bureau, Inc. Agricultural Career Scholarship application. Applicants must have successfully completed at least 24 hours of college credit with a cumulative GPA of at least 2.8. Students must have been residents of Harrison County on the date of their high school graduation.
The deadline to apply for either of these agricultural scholarships is Saturday, June 15 at 4 p.m.
