Every year, the Delaware 4-H Foundation offers the opportunity for 4-Her’s to apply for a scholarship to be utilized towards college expenses.
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 following 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 this website.
Scholarship applications are normally due at the beginning of May and winners are announced at the Delaware State Fair in July.
