Livestock Competition Scholarships

South Carolina Farm Bureau Sponsors Scholarships for Winners at Livestock Competitions

Each year South Carolina Farm Bureau Federation provides scholarships at the South Carolina State Fair held in Columbia.

SC Farm Bureau donates a total of $10,000 to five livestock competition winners. They include two junior beef scholarships at $2,500 each, one junior dairy scholarship for $2,000, one junior swine scholarship for $1,500 and one youth equine scholarship for $1,500.


South Carolina students in grades 10-12 or presently enrolled in a SC college/university four-year program and who have not passed their 20th birthday as of the date of the show may compete for the scholarships by entering their livestock in the appropriate competition and submitting a scholarship application.

Additional information, entry forms, and scholarship applications are available here beginning July 1.

Winners are announced at the State Fair during livestock department awards.
