Lake County Farm Bureau announces 2020 scholarship; applications available

LAKE COUNTY, Calif. – The Lake County Farm Bureau Scholarship Committee is pleased to announce that the scholarship application period for 2020 is open.

The LCFB Scholarship Program was organized to give financial aid to Lake County students who show a desire to pursue a career in the agricultural industry.

The scholarships are awarded annually and are based upon academic achievement, career goals, extracurricular activities, leadership skills and a commitment to study agriculture.

In 2020, Lake County Farm Bureau is proud to partner with Wildhurst Vineyards in awarding scholarships to honor two outstanding families.

The Hans and Carol Dobusch Scholarship is available to an eligible Lake County student who is pursuing a credential or degree in any field.

The Myron and Marilyn Holdenried Scholarship will be offered to a Lake County student who will pursue agriculture or science.

In addition to these two scholarships, Lake County Farm Bureau will continue to offer multiple agriculture-focused scholarships to Lake County students.

Eligible students must be a resident of Lake County who are enrolled or plan to enroll in a college or vocational school during the 2020-21 year.

To apply for the LCFB scholarship, students must complete an application, provide transcripts from each school attended and include two current and dated letters of recommendation.

The entire packet must be received by LCFB on or before April 10 to be considered by the scholarship committee.

Applications are available at Lake County Farm Bureau’s website, www.lakecofb.com, and at the office located at 65 Soda Bay Road in Lakeport.

Students can also get an application by contacting their local high school counselor or through the Mendocino College scholarship webpage.

Lake County Farm Bureau is proud to serve the agricultural and rural interests of Lake County and is the county’s largest farm organization, representing over 500 farm families and individual Members.
