Scholarship Awards

Two scholarships will be awarded:

  • One $500 scholarship
  • One $250 scholarship

Scholarship recipients will be notified by October 31, 2024. This is a one-time payment issued to the recipient, and an individual may receive the scholarship up to two times from the Northumberland County Fair.

The scholarships will be awarded in November, and recipients are encouraged to be present to accept the scholarships as pictures would be appreciated. Scholarship recipients will be determined based on the review of the application and responses to questions. In the event of a tie, priority may be given to a field of study that supports the continuation of future fairs.

All ages are welcome to apply.
