FIRST STATE ANTIQUE TRACTOR CLUB AGRICULTURE SCHOLARSHIP AWARD APPLICATION
The purpose of The First State Antique Tractor Club is to preserve and display Antique Tractors and Farm Equipment and to provide the public with an opportunity to experience the historical growth of agricultural technology. This is accomplished by holding an annual show and participating in the Delaware State Fair and 12 other annual events.
The First State Antique Tractor Club offers yearly scholarships to graduating seniors, on the Delmarva Peninsula, for the purpose of continuing education, in the field of agriculture.
Eligible students will be as follows: All schools in Delaware, five high schools in Maryland, (North Caroline, Colonel Richardson, Easton, Queen Anne, and North Dorchester), or the child or grandchild of a club member.
The scholarships will be awarded to a full time student, accepted in an agriculture program at a two or four year university or college. All applications must be received by April 15th. All applicants must show financial need and academic merit. An independent panel processes the applications and makes the selections. The amount of the award/awards will be determined by the Scholarship Committee of The First State Tractor Club. Four (4) $1000.00 scholarships will be awarded this year.
The scholarships are paid directly to the school or college, as directed by the recipient. The award must be paid to a school or college by October 31. If the scholarship is not used by October 31 of the second year, it will revert back to the Club. A change in the college, after the scholarships have been awarded, will result in a review by the selection committee.
The scholarships will be awarded at The First State Antique Tractor Club's annual show, in June.
