Scholarships

One of the most tangible and rewarding initiatives of the FarmHouse Foundation is our scholarship program. Each year, scholarships are offered at the International and local level and are open to all FarmHouse undergraduate and graduate students to apply. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic achievement, exemplary integrity, ethics, initiative and industry conducive to ongoing leadership, career potential and service to others. An ideal applicant should have a commitment to achieve the level of values that FarmHouse holds dear, in particular those principles of leadership, scholarship and a genuine interest in the success of their brothers. These characteristics embody those who have established these named scholarships and countless other FarmHouse men who continue the tradition today.
