Scholarships


Thank you to everyone who submitted their application for the 2019 year. Check back to see a list of recipients.

Up to $20,000 in Scholarships Available!

For over 179 years, the Erie County Agricultural Society has had the privilege of impacting lives of the people in the WNY community. One way we have been able to give back is by providing the opportunity for young adults to receive one of our Scholarships.

The Erie County Fair and Erie County Agricultural Society offers two scholarship programs annually as part of an effort to foster education and success to students of the area. These scholarships will award students $20,000 again in 2019. Please review the scholarships available and select the one that is most applicable to your involvement at the Erie County Fair and your career/school pursuits.

The application for both the Erie County Fair and Erie County Agricultural Society Scholarship are the same and you only have to submit one, even if you are applying for both.

The scholarship applications is available to download below or can be picked up at local high schools and colleges.

If you have any questions regarding these scholarships, please email mlucero@ecfair.org.
