State Farm “Good Neighbor” Scholarship

To apply please go to: https://www.scholarsapply.org/statefarmgoodneighborscholarship/

The State Farm Companies Foundation believes all children deserve an education that helps them reach their potential and prepares them for life.

Our support goes to programs that provide students the instruction, resources, and support they need to succeed. The State Farm Good Neighbor Scholarship Program was established to provide financial assistance to high school seniors who plan to attend college, technical, or vocational school, but may not be able to meet the expenses of a higher education without such aid and often do not qualify for other scholarships.

The program is administered by Scholarship America.

Who is eligible?

Applicants to the State Farm Good Neighbor Scholarship Program must meet all of the following criteria:

  • Must be a high school senior who will graduate at the end of the 2016-17 school year*
