The 2021 Texas 4-H Foundation Opportunity Scholarship applications will open November 2nd. There are a few updates to this year’s application. Due to COVID-19, many testing sites have been closed and seniors are having difficulty getting in to take the SAT/ACT exams. This year, we will be waiving the requirement for these exams. Applicants will not be asked to provide a score. Please see the updated guidelines. The score that was previously given for this requirement will be disbursed to other sections of the application.
Another change was made to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo financial aid cap. Previously, one would not be eligible for the HLSR scholarship if they accepted more than $90,000 in financial aid and scholarships. They have increased this cap to $110,000.
Nothing else has changed to the application or process! All updates and resources are available at texas4hfoundation.org on the Scholarship page. We anticipate a large pool of applicants this year and wish everyone the best of luck
You must complete your FAFSA (The Free Application for Federal Student Aid) before submitting your scholarship application at http://www.fafsa.gov/. This is required for Baccalaureate, Technical, and Courageous Heart scholarships. Please complete this before mid-December.
If you wait, you may not have time to get the FAFSA paperwork submitted and receive the SAR report before the Texas 4-H Opportunity Scholarship application deadline. This is a required document to be attached to your application, without this you will not be able to apply.
