4-H offers scholarships

The Warren County 4-H program is proud to announce it is accepting applications for the 2014 4-H Development Council Scholarships and the Wright Fund Scholarship. The 4-H Development Council Scholarship is sponsored by the 4-H board while the Wright Fund Scholarship has been established in honor of Phyllis Wright, a longtime Extension Educator in Warren County.

Each year the 4-H program offers scholarships to members and current screened volunteers pursuing post secondary degrees. The individuals must have three years of membership as a 4-H member or volunteer. The applicants must be accepted or currently enrolled in an approved PHEAA program. The award is renewable to past winners. It is not available for graduate level work.

Both scholarships have been established through donations and fundraiser undertaken by the 4-H program. One application may be completed for both scholarships. The Wright Fund Scholarship is available for individuals enrolled in an education, human services, family living or consumer science field.

Warren County 4-H members and volunteers are encouraged to complete applications by Tuesday, April 1. Four scholarships at $1000 per scholarship are available. Applications can be obtained by contacting the Penn State Extension office in Warren County at 563-9388 or by emailing jag46@psu.edu.
