The Future of Agriculture Depends on you.


We’ve Got 10,000 Reasons


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.

Yes, you read that correctly – a total of $100,000 in scholarships will go directly to local students!

Not sure if you fit the bill? There’s more to agriculture than farming.
