Fair Scholarship Program

The Columbia County Agricultural Society offers a college scholarship program to support Ag Education. It awards $1,000 merit scholarships to two students who have been active in the Columbia County Fair as an exhibitor, presenter, volunteer, or in some other capacity.

Applicants must be Columbia County residents completing their senior year at any high school in 2019 and must be enrolled as a full-time student in an accredited two or four-year college to commence in the fall of 2019, pursuing a field of study related to agriculture.

Applications will be scored based upon the following criteria:

Recipients will be announced during a ceremony at the 2019 Columbia County Fair. Payment will be made upon completion of the recipient’s Fall 2019 semester.
