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. The deadline to apply is March 1, 2024.
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 technical college. The scholarships from SDFB are not limited to high school seniors; students can apply at any point in their college career. 
The SDFB scholarship fund was established in 2005 by SDFB past president Richard Ekstrum and his wife Agnes. Richard served as South Dakota Farm Bureau president from 1975–1995.
