Every year, Grow Ag Leaders awards more than $500,000 in scholarships to students studying in ag-related fields. In 2021, more than 350 scholarships totaling more than $500,000 will be awarded across the U.S.
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 are now closed. Check back in May for a list of 2021 winners.
Up to 352 scholarships will be awarded to students, with winning applications selected by the National FFA organization. Winners will be announced on the FFA website in May 2021.
A brighter tomorrow for farms starts today with a commitment from Bayer Fund’s America’s Farmers programs. Since 2010, the America’s Farmers programs has awarded over $59 million to nonprofits, schools and ag youth organizations across rural America.
