South Dakota Farm Bureau (SDFB) is offering scholarships to high school seniors and college students whose parents or guardians are current members of South Dakota Farm Bureau and have been for at least two years.
 Applicants can consider an agriculture-focused or community-focused scholarship, depending on their major and experience with agriculture. Scholarships are awarded to students enrolled in a four-year program or those pursuing a two-year degree at a vocational school. Additionally, scholarships are not limited to high school seniors; students can apply at any point in their college level. 
"Thanks to the leadership of SDFB past president Richard Ekstrum and his wife Agnes, the SDFB scholarship has helped young people in higher education since 2005,” said Krystil Smit, SDFB Executive Director. "We are pleased to once again honor young people with financial awards to help make their educational goals a reality."
The SDFB scholarship fund was established in 2005 by the Ekstrum’s. Richard served as South Dakota Farm Bureau president from 1975–1995. 
March 15, 2023 is the deadline to apply. The scholarship application can be found at
