The Board of Directors and members of the Academic Scholarship Committee of the Colorado Young Farmers Educational Association are pleased to announce the continuation of its college academic scholarship program since 1992. Over $95,000 has been given out by the CYFEA to college bound/secondary education students throughout Colorado!
The purpose of the CYFEA Academic Scholarship program is to recognize outstanding Colorado students who will be a freshman, sophomore, junior and senior that is majoring in agriculture. Special attention is given to a junior or senior majoring in Agricultural Education and working toward their teacher certification. Selection of the scholarship award recipients is also based upon personal, local community and statewide activities and interests in agriculture.
Students must be Colorado residents, enrolled as a full-time student at a junior/community college, college, or university. Each year, there will be up to four one-year college scholarships awarded for a total of $7000 annually. Typically, this is for a $1000 award for an entering freshman, a $1500 award for a college sophomore, a $2000.00 award for a college junior and a $2500 award for a college senior.
All applications must be completed and postmarked by March 15th and sent to:
