The National FFA Organization and National FFA Foundation awarded more than $2 million in scholarships to more than 1,300 recipients in 2020.
Overall, there were more than 6,800 applications, meaning about 25 percent of those who applied earned scholarships, which can be used by students pursuing two-year degrees, four-year degrees and vocational schools.
The FFA scholarship program has been around since 1984 and has now awarded more than $50 million.
“FFA members are the next generation of leaders who will change the world. We are excited to be able to support them on the next steps in their educational journeys,” said Michele Sullivan, senior manager of local engagement for the organization.
Students were selected based on FFA involvement, work experience, supervised ag experience, community service, leadership skills, academics and financial need.
