Deadline To Apply For SBVFC Scholarships Extended

Since schools are currently closed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the deadline to apply for these scholarships has been extended from March 31, 2020, to April 30, 2020.

The St. Bernard Chapter of the Louisiana Volunteers for Family and Community, an organization under the auspices of the LSU Agriculture Center, is the sponsoring group. Four (4) $1,000.00 scholarships will be awarded for the Fall 2020 school year.

Since the SBVFC is an organization that seeks to promote volunteering in order to improve the lives of our community members and our families, the criteria for this scholarship highly emphasizes the student’s volunteer activities.

Graduating seniors attending any metro New Orleans high school, who are residents of St. Bernard Parish, are eligible. Please contact your high school counselor for a copy of the application or you may contact Lucy Ruffino, SBVFC Scholarship Chair at email:, or the LSU AG Center at 504-278-4234.
