Ohio State Beekeepers Association supports new young beekeepers through our Ohio Partnership Program. We realize that the success of a new beekeeper is not reliant on the work of the student and money alone, but by the effort of the partnership. Thus, the Ohio Partnership Program encourages participation of the guardian, 4-H / FFA Ohio adviser, local Ohio association, and mentor.
The number of scholarships available per year will vary based on the amount of available funds and donations. The number will be posted each year on the OSBA website. For 2021 there are at least 10 scholarships available: 5 designated for 4-H and 5 designated for FFA.
