2021 Agriculture Scholarship Program
Will Be Announced Fall 2020
Since 2004, FCI has awarded scholarships to college-bound high school seniors who are pursuing agriculture-related curriculum and careers. In 2020, Farm Credit Illinois presented $2,000 Agriculture Scholarships to 30 high school seniors. Two of the applicants were designated Diversity in Agriculture Scholars.
“Farm Credit is proud to invest in young people who have a passion for agriculture. We need the brightest of today’s youth to become tomorrow’s agricultural leaders,” says Aaron Johnson, Farm Credit Illinois President & C.E.O. “The Agriculture Scholarship program promotes the positive opportunities of exploring careers in the agriculture industry – including production agriculture.” Scholarship selection is based upon a combination of academic achievement, participation and leadership in school and community organizations, and the applicant’s commitment level to an agricultural career.
