Scholarships available for 4-H members

Deadlines to apply for nearly $100,000 worth of post-secondary 4-H scholarships are fast approaching for future undergrads. The scholarships are open to members of 4-H, the 110-year-old youth-development organization based in Ottawa. Though many of last year's 4,300 Ontario-based 4-H members had a farming background, 4-H is open to all youths up to age 21. More information, including deadlines, is available online at
