3. National FFA Scholarships: Application Opens Nov. 15

The National FFA Scholarship application will open on Thursday, Nov. 15, 2018. This year’s application will be online, eliminating the current paper process and facilitating a more timely and effective delivery and acceptance process. Be sure to promote this opportunity to your high school seniors, collegiate members and all students interested in pursuing a postsecondary education. There are many scholarship opportunities, and only one application needs to be completed per student.

FFA scholarships are sponsored by businesses and individuals through the National FFA Foundation and are given for a variety of experiences, career goals and higher education plans. Dealer programs provide a significant amount of scholarship funds so be sure to encourage your local Ford, Chevrolet, Ram and John Deere dealers to sign up to be part of this opportunity. Dealers have until Dec. 31, 2018, to enroll. FFA also has funding to support non-FFA members through America’s Farmers Grow Ag Leaders—sponsored by the Monsanto Fund, a philanthropic arm of Bayer—as well as several other sponsors. To find out more about scholarships, visit
