2020 Scholarship Programs

In 2020, $20,000 in scholarships were awarded to 9 students in agriculture-related fields of study.

The HCS&GO style show and silent auction, held in Kerrville each fall, raises the funds for these scholarships.  Due to COVID, this year’s fundraiser will be a virtual raffle held on November 10th.

Scholarship applications for the 2021 Programs will be posted here in the spring of 2021.  For your information, last year’s applications are still available below.
