 2015 Applied Youth Livestock Scholarship Recipients


How does it work?

When you have enrolled in an accredited college, university or trade program, the earnings will be paid directly to your student account at your educational institution. To access scholarship funds after enrolling in a school, you will complete the Scholarship Payment Request Form and submit the form to the school’s registrar’s office. The registrar’s office will then forward the request to the State Fair of Virginia for payment. 

Scholarships not used by your 24th birthday will revert from your name back into the State Fair of Virginia Scholarship Fund. You may not request that funds be transferred to another student.

Special notice

Scholarships earned through State Fair competitions in 2012 and earlier are held in an account at Virginia Tech. Students with scholarship earnings from 2012 and earlier will receive an annual statement from that account and will submit a similar request to the Virginia Tech Foundation for disbursal of funds. Therefore, a student who earned scholarships both before and after the 2012 State Fair will request scholarship funds from two organizations.
