Applications are being accepted now through the end of January for Farm Credit Mid-America’s Customer Agricultural Scholarship. More than 30 students who are children or grandchildren of Farm Credit Mid-America customers majoring in agriculture or pursuing rural community-related careers will receive $1,500 scholarships for Fall 2018. High school seniors and those in college are welcome to apply.
Additionally, one recipient from each state we serve (IN, OH, KY and TN) will be selected to receive an extra $1,000 scholarship and a trip to Louisville to share their agricultural story with our leadership team this summer.
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.
