Bruce Field Scholarship

The Bruce Field Agriculture Award is sponsored annually by the Central New York Farm Progress Show, Inc. and offers $300 to a graduating senior boy and girl who reside in Herkimer County to be used to further their education in agriculture.

Bruce Field was a past agriculture extension agent and first team leader of the Herkimer/Oneida County Dairy Team. He was always willing to pass on his agricultural knowledge to anyone who listened and was interested in the youth of the area. Field's untimely death stopped his personal education endeavors, but this award, in his memory, helps students in Herkimer County follow his path.

Applications must be submitted to Cornell Cooperative Extension of Herkimer County by May 1 and are available through local high school guidance offices or by calling Cornell Cooperative Extension at 315-866-7920. The application is also available in PDF format online at http://www.cce.cornell.edu/~herkimer (click on the 4-H link and then the 4-H calendar link).
