Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance has established a scholarship program to assist children and grandchildren of full-time insurance employees, agents and retirees who plan to continue their education in college.
This program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor, and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability, or national origin.
Applicants to the Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance Educational Opportunity Scholarship Program must be:
Previous recipients are ineligible to reapply.
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $2,000 award. Up to seven (7) awards will be granted each year. Awards are one-time only.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
Selection of Recipients
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience, statement of educational and career goals and objectives, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an outside appraisal. Financial need is not considered.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
Applicants will be notified in May. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients.
Payment of Scholarships
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance. Payment is made in one installment in early August.
