2017 Farm Credit Scholarship Program

Posted: August 21, 2017

As part of Farm Credit’s centennial celebration, the Farm Credit Foundation for Agricultural Advancement is kicking off a new scholarship program. We’ll be awarding 10 scholarships worth $10,000 each to students planning to pursue a career in agriculture.

The Farm Credit Foundation for Agricultural Advancement is offering scholarships to high school seniors or those currently enrolled in a two or four year higher education program, with plans to pursue a career in agriculture. This doesn’t have to mean you’re planning to be a farmer – this also includes food scientists, veterinarians, ag teachers, or maybe even a Farm Credit loan officer!
In order to be eligible, you must reside in MidAtlantic Farm Credit’s territory, made up of the following states/counties: Delaware, Maryland (Baltimore, Carroll, Caroline, Cecil, Dorchester, Frederick, Harford, Howard, Kent, Montgomery, Queen Anne’s, Somerset, Talbot, Washington, Wicomico, Worcester), Pennsylvania (Berks, Bucks, Carbon, Chester, Dauphin, Delaware, Lebanon, Lancaster, Lehigh, Monroe, Montgomery, Northampton, Philadelphia, Pike, Schuylkill), Virginia (Accomack, Clarke, Frederick, Northampton, Page, Shenandoah, Warren), or West Virginia (Berkeley, Jefferson, Morgan).
