Texas Farm Bureau announces new major scholarship opportunity
A major scholarship honoring former Texas Farm Bureau President S.M. True Jr. has been announced by the state’s largest farm organization.
The Texas Farm Bureau board of directors has established the $20,000 S.M. True Jr. Agricultural Scholar Award to honor his commitment and dedication to Texas agriculture.
The scholarship will be presented annually to one recipient who is classified as a junior and enrolled in a four-year college or university. To receive the full amount, the recipient must continue to major in agriculture and maintain a satisfactory grade-point average.
Applicants must be a member of a Texas Farm Bureau family with continuous membership for at least three years at the time of application. In addition, a completed application and two letters of recommendation -- one from the county Farm Bureau president and one from the dean or head of the agriculture program department of the applicant’s college or university -- are required.
True served as president of the Texas Farm Bureau from 1982 to 1993 and had a passion for improving the lives of his fellow farmers and ranchers. He was a believer that Farm Bureau was the organization that best represented agriculture because of its grass-roots orientation.
Applications are due in the state office by Wednesday, April 30.
