Mosbacher 4-H Educational Scholarship

The Mosbacher 4-H Education Fund was established in 1971 to honor the superior service to McLean County agriculture and the 4-H program by Cooperative Extension Service Agriculture Adviser Eugene G. Mosbacher. Since that time, the outstanding achievements of 122 McLean County 4-H Club members have been recognized as they receive this award in honor of Mr. Mosbacher. Mr. Mosbacher passed away in 2002, and he is remembered for his many contributions to the program.

 

The awards are given to encourage graduated senior 4-H members to continue their education beyond high school by awarding cash scholarship grants. Depending on the number of qualified applicants, one to three scholarships will be granted in the amount of at least $2,000. To receive this award is both an honor and a financial aid to the recipient.

 

Eligibility:

·         Current 4-H member who has graduated from high school during the 2016-2017 school year and has been admitted to an accredited university, college, junior college, or vocational school for the 2017-2018 school year (proof of admittance required).

 

Details:

·         Applications are due at the Extension office by 4:30 p.m. on October 23, 2017.

·         Applications are photocopied and sent to members of the Selection Committee.

·         Selection committee scores forms at home.

·         Committee meets, tallies scores, discusses, and chooses winners.

·         Announcement of winners is made at Recognition of Excellence Banquet. The award check will be made out to the student and the higher education institution.
