2022 Ford County 4-H Foundation Scholarships

The Ford County 4-H Foundation offers several scholarships each year for current 4-H members and 4-H alumni. These scholarships are made possible through memorials left by various supporters of 4-H. Scholarships typically range between $600 to $2,000, assisting students with college financial expenses.
