Grow Ag Leaders Program and Scholarship | America's Farmers

the future is Farming

Every year, Grow Ag Leaders awards more than $500,000 in scholarships to students studying in ag-related fields.  Congratulations to the 2018 winners!

Agriculture creates nearly 54,000 jobs each year, and almost half of these 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. Applications for 2019 Grow Ag Leaders will open November 15, 2018.

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.

With the help of farmers, each year more than $528,000 in Grow Ag Leaders scholarships are awarded to students in rural America. 

Here's what students are saying about the program.
