Scholarships available for high school seniors

High school seniors can get some help paying for college with a pair of scholarship opportunities available.

Superior Shores Farm Bureau announced it will grant one $500 scholarship to a high school senior in Ashland, Bayfield, Douglas or Iron County. This scholarship is open to all students pursuing a degree in the agriculture industry and attending a technical school or four-year university.

Preference will be given to students from Farm Bureau families. This scholarship is based on the student's past school and community activities, plans for future education and recommendation.

A certificate of scholarship will be presented to winners this spring and the scholarship funds will be awarded after the student has completed one semester of college or vocational school and has provided a transcript with acceptable grades.

The deadline to apply is April 15. For more information, contact Katie Mattison at 866-355-7349 or
