About National FFA Scholarship Program
In 2016, the National FFA Organization awarded $2.2 million in scholarships designed to fit the diversity of our applicants.
Scholarships are sponsored by businesses and individuals through the National FFA Foundation and are given for a wide variety of experiences, career goals and higher education plans.
The selection process takes into account the whole student - FFA involvement, work experience, supervised agricultural experience (SAE), community service, leadership skills and academics.
More than 1,800 scholarships are available. Click here for details and a list of 2017 sponsors.
Not an FFA Member? Don't Worry!
In 2017, America's Farmers Grow Ag Leaders (presented by Monsanto Fund), Dean Foods, Iowa Interstate Railroad Ltd., National Mastitis Council and Rose Acre Farms will offer scholarships available to non-FFA members. Check scholarship catalog descriptions to see if you qualify.
