In an effort to recognize outstanding Ohio youth and to help those interested in furthering their education, the Ohio Expositions Commission has established a scholarship program. The purpose of these scholarships is to assist high school juniors and seniors (2018-2019) and graduates who are continuing their education at an accredited institution in an undergraduate course of study in any field.
Available scholarships include seven Endowment Fund scholarships; (3) Jr. Fair Beef Cattle, (3) Jr. Fair Swine, and (3) Jr. Fair Sheep Exhibitor scholarships, (2) Jr. Fair Poultry, (2) Jr. Fair Dairy Cattle Exhibitor and (2) Jr. Fair Horse Exhibitor scholarships; (1) Jr. Fair Dairy Goat, (1) Jr. Fair Boer Goat, (1) Jr. Fair Rabbit, and (1) Jr. Fair Dog Exhibitor scholarship; and (3) Jr. Fair Exhibits & Activities scholarships. All of the scholarships offered are $1,000 each, except for the Governor James A. Rhodes Junior Fair Endowment Fund Scholarship which is $1,500.
Scholarships will be awarded to junior exhibitors during the Ohio State Fair. Applicants will be judged on scholastic standing, citizenship and leadership, Ohio State Fair participation, county fair participation, and financial need. Completed applications must be postmarked by April 15, 2019.
