Every year, agriculture serves up around 54,000 new jobs. And every year, almost half of them go unfilled. It’s up to farming communities to remind students that a career in ag is beneficial to both their own personal success stories and our growing population. Grow Ag Leaders asks farmers 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.
We task farmers, parents and teachers with promoting the program to students and reminding them that modern agriculture opens many 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.
