Joseph Fichter Scholarship
The 2018 Joseph Fichter Scholarship will be awarded in late January – OFU high school seniors should apply now.
The theme for the contest this year is, “What are the unique needs of family farmers and rural residents regarding healthcare insurance? Does the U.S. system work and should government be more or less involved?”
Any member of the Ohio Farmers Union who is a high school senior may compete for this scholarship. Students who are not members but are sons, daughters or grandchildren of OFU members may apply.
First-place will receive $750 and the runner-up will receive $250 toward their post-secondary education expenses.
