Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance Educational Opportunity Scholarship Program
Application status: Closed

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 scholarships 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:

  • Children or grandchildren, age 25 and under, of full-time insurance employees or agents who have a minimum of 12 months of consecutive employment with the company or of living retired full-time employees or agents as of the application deadline.
  • High school seniors or graduates, or current postsecondary undergraduates, in their first, second or third year of postsecondary education, who plan to enroll in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two-year or four-year college, university, or community college for the entire upcoming academic year.

Previous recipients are ineligible to reapply.

Award Amounts
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.

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.

Selection of Recipients
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of:

  • Academic record
  • Demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities
  • Work experience
  • A statement of educational and career goals and objectives
  • Unusual personal or family circumstances
  • An online recommendation

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.

As part of your application, you must upload a current, complete transcript of grades. Grade reports are not accepted. Transcripts must display student name, school name, grades and credit hours for each course, and term in which each course was taken.

NOTE: If you are providing SAT or ACT test scores, and those scores are not listed on your high school transcript, you will need to upload an official copy of those test scores separately. If you are uploading a college transcript, those scores are not required.

One online recommendation form must be submitted on your behalf no later than March 15, 2023 3:00 pm Central Time.

Your application is not considered complete unless all required documents are submitted electronically.
