Every year, agriculture serves up around 54,000 new jobs. And every year, almost half of them go unfilled. Now, farmers can help remind students that the ag industry provides a plethora of opportunities.
Grow Ag Leaders gives farmers the chance to endorse high school seniors or college students for a chance to win a $1,500 scholarship to support their higher education studies in ag-related fields.
Farmers, parents and teachers who know bright students can remind them that modern agriculture opens many professional doors. Agriculture career paths include: IT, IS, software development, procurement, finance, education, sales, food science, food processing, biology, research and ag economics. Agriculture needs a new crop of leaders. And with Grow Ag Leaders scholarships, they’re just a degree away.
When someone needs help, farmers answer the call. Every year, we endeavor to make it simple for farmers to lift up their communities through the America’s Farmers programs.
