Agriculture Future of America Scholarship Program

Description

AFA and its partners award annual scholarships to graduating high school seniors and current undergraduate students enrolled in agriculture and food-related degree programs across the U.S. Awards vary in amounts, but are at least $1,600 and include sponsorship to AFA Leaders Conference (worth $1,250). The only cost to the student is the time spent filling out the application and travel expenses to AFA Leaders Conference in Kansas City, Missouri. Scholarship recipients will be selected on the basis of career vision and goal, leader and community involvement and financial need. Some applicants will be selected based on a specific criteria requirement set by our partner organizations and communities. Applicants will be notified of their scholarship status in early June. Possess a passion for food and agriculture. Plan to pursue a career in the food and agriculture industry. Scholars must request funds by providing a copy of university tuition, fees or books (if billed through the university) that demonstrates an outstanding balance or which has been otherwise paid by loans or personal payments for such charges to AFA. Funds are dissolved after completion of a bachelorÔÇÖs degree; if not requested before graduation, or if proof of balance owed is insufficient. Study agriculture or related field.
