The Texas 4-H Youth Development Foundation is once again pleased to offer senior high school 4-H members and current college students the opportunity to apply for an Opportunity Scholarship. Texas 4-H members can apply for scholarships in three areas, baccalaureate, courageous heart, and technical. Former Texas 4-H members will be able to apply for scholarships through the collegiate scholarship program.
Changes for the 2019 Texas 4-H Opportunity Scholarship Process:
- All applications (except collegiate) must be submitted through 4-H CONNECT.
- Applicants must work directly with their school administrators to ensure they have quartile ranking for their application. A quartile ranking is required to be considered for a Texas 4-H Opportunity Scholarship.
- Any incomplete or incorrect application submitted will not be considered. It is the responsibility of the 4-H member and parent/guardian to ensure all information is correct and complete prior to submitting. Absolutely no follow up or updates will be allowed once submitted.
All applications (except collegiate) must be submitted through 4-H CONNECT and meet all criteria to be considered.
