Re­cip­i­ents of the schol­ar­ships will be rec­og­nized at spe­cial cer­e­monies dur­ing the 2017 unFAIRget­table MY Mary­land State Fair.

“Since its in­cep­tion in 1879, agri­cul­ture ed­u­ca­tion has been one of the Mary­land State Fair’s top pri­or­i­ties,” said Mary­land State Fair Gen­eral Man­ager Andy Cash­man. “Our com­pet­i­tive schol­ar­ships high­light and re­ward the ac­com­plish­ments of youth, help them with their ed­u­ca­tional pur­suits, and pro­mote the im­por­tance of agri­cul­ture to our state and our world.”

The Mary­land State Fair $2,000 Schol­ar­ships rec­og­nize the im­por­tance of ed­u­ca­tion and par­tic­i­pa­tion in the Mary­land State Fair. Ap­pli­cants must be per­ma­nent res­i­dents of Mary­land and ac­tive par­tic­i­pants in the 2017 Mary­land State Fair. They must be cur­rently en­rolled in an ac­cred­ited col­lege/univer­sity or be a high school se­nior en­ter­ing their col­lege fresh­man year in 2017. The ap­pli­cant must com­plete an es­say on the im­pact of their ex­pe­ri­ence par­tic­i­pat­ing in the Mary­land State Fair and how the schol­ar­ship will be ben­e­fi­cial in help­ing them with their ca­reer goals. Nine win­ners will be se­lected and will each re­ceive $2,000 in schol­ar­ship monies.
