Texas 4-H and 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 and Youth Development Opportunity Scholarship Program is conducted in coordination with the Texas 4-H and Youth Development Program, the Texas 4-H Youth Development Foundation, and Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service. All applications must be submitted through the applicants county Extension office and meet all criteria to be considered.
Well over 200 academically-competitive scholarships will be awarded in the 2018 Texas 4-H Scholarship Program ranging in amounts from $3000 to $20,000.* No scholarship recipient whose award is based on this application process will receive less than $3000.* The Texas 4-H Foundation seeks to ensure that each recipient receives the highest dollar amount of scholarship for which that recipient is eligible. For the majority of the total scholarships and scholarship funds available, participation in a livestock show is not a requirement for consideration for an Opportunity Scholarship. *This will exclude scholarships provided through the Texas Extension Education Association and the San Antonio Livestock Exposition School Tour Scholarship programs.
