ENFIELD, Conn. — Farm Credit East, the Northeast’s largest agricultural lending cooperative, recently announced a new scholarship for students involved in The National FFA Organization (Future Farmers of America). This scholarship will be awarded to four students with a strong Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) and who understand their project’s impact on their future career in an agriculturally related field.
Four $500 scholarships will be awarded. Funds can be used to support the student’s current SAE project or to enhance their knowledge of the agriculture, commercial fishing or forest products industries.
To apply, applicants must be active in their local FFA chapter and reside within the seven states Farm Credit East serves. Applicants will be evaluated on their Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE), including objectives, progress to date and project financials. Their community involvement and volunteer activities will also be looked at in the judging criteria.
