Through the National FFA Foundation, businesses and individuals support scholarships that are awarded to students with a wide variety of higher education plans and career goals. FFA provides scholarships that support all areas of agriculture, either in trade schools, certifications, or college. Scholarships support FFA high school seniors and collegiate members. Just one application is required for multiple scholarship opportunities totaling close to $2 million.
Nearly $2 million in FFA scholarships are available, thanks in part to a recent gift from the Tractor Supply Foundation. Each year for the next five years, Tractor Supply will commit $1 million to the FFA Futures Leaders Scholarship Fund. Tractor Supply will also offer scholarship recipients the opportunity to interview for career opportunities at its stores or distribution centers while they are pursuing their education and will earmark internships at the company’s Store Support Center each year. To be eligible for the scholarships, FFA members must be studying agriculture or a skilled trade.
