  • The amount of the scholarship will be up to $250 per year. The amount will depend on the NCCEAPA– West District’s budget. The amount to be awarded will be voted on and presented at the spring meeting in the year of the award.
  • Scholarship should be to any deserving youth, with 4-H members receiving preference. It may be used at the designated county’s discretion for an individual child or split among several children.

ONLY COUNTIES WITH PAID AND ACTIVE MEMBERS IN THE ASSOCIATION WILL BE ELIGIBLE – SUPPORT STAFF MUST HAVE ATTENDED EITHER THE PREVIOUS FALL MEETING OR THE CURRENT SPRING MEETING FOR THEIR COUNTY TO RECEIVE THE SCHOLARSHIP FUNDS.

  • The county due to receive the scholarship will be notified by the district president by the spring meeting in the year prior to the scholarship award. If the designated county to receive the scholarship does not qualify for the scholarship, the next qualified county in the rotation will be awarded that year’s scholarship and the rotation will be updated. If a county does not qualify for the scholarship they simply advance in the rotation as if they did receive the funds. We will not skip over counties.
  • The county awarded the scholarship will present a report to the membership at the fall meeting. The report should explain how the funds were used.
