Texas 4-H Opportunity Scholarship
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 submitted through the applicant’s county Extension office and meet all criteria to be considered. See the links below for more information.
Texas 4-H Collegiate 4-H Scholarship
The Texas 4-H Youth Development Foundation provides a limited number of collegiate scholarships to students who are currently enrolled in a Texas college or university. These scholarships are awarded to deserving former 4-H members who have continued to excel in both academics and service at the collegiate level. See the link below for more information.
Other Scholarship Opportunities for 4-H Members
Stock Show Scholarships
When you apply for a 4-H scholarship, you are automatically entered into the application process for stock shows in Texas. Stock show scholarships are based on your placing in the overall scholarship program.
The exception is Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo. You will be considered for the main Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo scholarship in your general 4-H scholarship application, but Houston has other scholarships you can apply for separately. You can only receive one scholarship from Houston so we recommend that you apply for the main 4-H scholarship as well as any others you qualify for with Houston, such as the exhibitor scholarship. See a list of all scholarships available from Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo.
The Texas Extension Education Association Scholarship:
This scholarship is for high school seniors who have been involved in 4-H for four years, have shown leadership and personal development, plan to get a college or vocational degree, and have not passed their 19th birthday by January 1 of the current application year. Applications are submitted to your county AgriLife Extension office.
