TEXAS 4-H FOUNDATION OPPORTUNITY SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

Texas 4-H Opportunity Scholarships are academic scholarships awarded each year to applicants based on their academic record, 4-H experience, and financial need.  Thanks to our generous donors, we are able to award over $2.5 MILLION in scholarships to over 200 4-H members.

COVID-19 UPDATE, 05/01/2020: Interview notifications have been made, but due to a change in events, award notifications will now be made on May 22nd. Thank you for your patience and understanding through these unprecedented times. 

COVID-19 UPDATE, 04/09/2020: Interview notifications are now postponed until further notice. Donor commitments are still being reviewed due to the current state of our economy. We appreciate your patience, and hope to have a decision made soon.

COVID-19 UPDATE, 04/01/2020: Interview notifications will now take place on April 10th. These were previously scheduled for April 3rd, but due to COVID-19 we will not be having face-to-face scholarship interviews. Applicants will now submit a short video instead. Instructions will be sent to those moving to the next phase of the scholarship application process.

Keep in mind:
You must complete your FAFSA (The Free Application for Federal Student Aid) before submitting your scholarship application at http://www.fafsa.gov/. This is required for Baccalaureate, Technical, and Courageous Heart scholarships. Please complete this before mid-December.
If you wait, you may not have time to get the FAFSA paperwork submitted and receive the SAR report before the Texas 4-H Opportunity Scholarship application deadline. This is a required document to be attached to your application, without this you will not be able to apply.
