High school seniors and college students

The National FFA Organization was originally called Future Farmers of America and many of the scholarships they offer are agriculture related. However, there are some scholarships that are very broad. For example here are the areas of study for one scholarship sponsored by the Tractor Supply Company: “selected areas of agriculture including, but not limited to: Forestry, communications, education, management, finance, food service, marketing, merchandising, sales, science, engineering animal or plant breeding/pathology, mechanization, natural resources, veterinary sciences, soil or water conservation, wildlife management, welding or diesel mechanics.”

Many scholarships require membership in FFA, but not all. The following scholarships do not require FFA membership: Dean Foods, Foundation for Environmental Agriculture, Iowa Interstate Railroad Ltd., Kohler Company, National Mastitis Council and Rose Acre Farms scholarships.

There is a 51 page document (pdf) that you can download that details all of their scholarships. However, there is only one application to fill out.
