Ken Bragg 4-H Scholarship
Deadline: March 1
Scholarship awarded to recipient who:
- Is a West Virginia 4-H'er
- First preference is given to a current 4-H member of Gilmer, Lewis, Braxton, Randolph or Upshur counties
- Enrolled as a student at WVU

If no applicants fit this profile, consideration will be opened to Gilmer County students who are studying at WVU’s Davis College.
Ken Bragg was a long-time 4-H'er, a WVU graduate of the Davis College and an Extension agent for many years. After a successful career in agriculture, he wanted to give back and establish the scholarship for 4-H youths. Coming from a family with modest means helped motivate him to set up a charitable annuity that would become an endowed scholarship for 4-H'ers after he passed away.
Mr. Bragg wanted to ensure that 4-H’ers – regardless of economic status – would have a chance to attend college.
