Applications are being accepted now through the end of December for Farm Credit Mid-America’s Customer Agricultural Scholarship. Students who are children or grandchildren of Farm Credit Mid-America customers attending accredited two-or four-year colleges, universities of vocational/trade schools will receive $1,500 scholarships for Fall 2021. High school seniors and those in college are welcome to apply.
One of the most important ways we all can invest in the future of agriculture is to invest in people, in particular the students who will become tomorrow’s agricultural industry leaders and who demonstrate strong academics, leadership, community involvement and vision.
The Farm Credit Mid-America Scholars program awards $5,000 in scholarship support over a two-year period. It has built-in leadership and financial development workshops as well. Farm Credit Mid-America is looking for the next generation of leaders, who want to make a difference in the field of agriculture, to be members of their 2021-22 cohort. Candidates must be a rising sophomore or rising junior in the fall of 2021, pursuing a degree in agriculture from a university within IN, OH, KY and TN. A minimum GPA of 3.0 is required.
