The Buena Vista County 4-H Fund and Endowment Board has approved funds for use by youth who need financial assistance to participate in the Iowa Youth and 4-H program.  These funds are intended to provide an opportunity for youth who otherwise would be financially unable to participate in events, activities and individual or group projects at the county, area or state level.

The purpose of the Buena Vista 4-H Scholarship program is to provide financial assistance to a senior high school student that will be attending a university, private college or community college. As we are a non-profit youth education organization, we need to support our youth as they further their studies. Our most valuable asset is our youth and their future, so an investment in their future is a worthwhile effort.
