TEXAS 4-H OPPORTUNITY SCHOLARSHIPS
Texas 4-H Youth Development Program Opportunity Scholarships are ACADEMIC SCHOLARSHIPS awarded each year to applicants based on their academic record, 4-H experience, and financial need (for scholarships for which it is a required criterion). The Texas 4-H Youth Development Opportunity Scholarship Program is conducted by the Texas 4-H Youth Development Foundation. All applications must be completed/submitted through 4-H CONNECT and meet all criteria to be considered. Well over 200 academically-competitive scholarships will be awarded in the 2019 Texas 4-H Scholarship Program ranging in amounts from $3000 to $20,000.*
There is a scholarship category for most everyone, including:
- Baccalaureate Scholarship: For students interested in a four-year degree.
- Technical Certification: For students interested in joining the workforce soon after finishing high school. Some 4-H approved examples are vocational nursing, veterinary technology, and electrical design technology. More 4-H approved vocational programs are listed on page 5 of the Opportunity Scholarship Application and Guideline page.
- Courageous Heart: For students who continued school and 4-H during hardship.
- Collegiate Scholarships: For former 4-H students currently attending a college or university. You will need at least 30 hours of college credit and a GPA of 2.7 to apply. For the first three scholarship types, you will follow the same application instructions and process. When you submit your application, 4-H will determine all of the scholarships that you are eligible for. The collegiate scholarship has its own application.
