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!

The Farm Credit Foundation for Agricultural Advancement is giving away ten scholarships, each worth $10,000 to local students planning to pursue a career in agriculture.  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)
  • West Virginia (Berkeley, Jefferson, Morgan)
  • Washington D.C.

The deadline to submit your application is Friday, January 7, 2022. The application for this scholarship program will only be available online.
