The Mississippi Valley Beekeepers Association, (MVBA) is currently accepting and reviewing applications for our
Youth Beekeeping Scholarship Program!
This program gives area youth and their families the opportunity to learn hands-on about the world of beekeeping and the importance of our pollinators in agriculture, with the incentives to become successful beekeepers. Each year, it has proven successful for past recipients and their families at no cost to them.
If you have a young person that is interested in Beekeeping, and will be between the ages of 14 & 18 years old by November 1st, of the current year; please read the following downloadable PDF Application and either email it to:
or send it via USPS postmarked by September 15th, 2023 to the following address:

You are also welcome to bring the Application to one of our monthly meetings, which are held the last Tuesday of every month (except November), at 7:00 pm in the:
Adams County Farm Bureau Building, 330 South 36th St. Quincy, IL.
Our Youth Beekeeping Scholarship Program is a great opportunity for young adults. If you have any questions or would like to add your child to our waiting list, after the current year's selection, please contact us. We would love to hear about the interest of the area youth.
