What is the fCA Careers in Agriculture Scholarship?

The Full Circle Ag Careers in Agriculture Scholarship Program is an annual program available to students who meet the following criteria:

  • Must live within the Full Circle Ag trade territory

  • Must be pursuing a two-year or four-year degree in agriculture or closely related field

  • Must be a graduating senior or currently enrolled in a two-year or four-year college
    (Once a student receives the Careers in Ag scholarship, they are no longer eligible to re-apply for an additional scholarship.)

  • Must demonstrate leadership skills and supply to FCA references from their respective academic instructors. 

As part of the application process, students are also asked to submit a short essay on why cooperatives are important to agriculture and why they are interested in agriculture as a career.

This annual scholarship program is just one way for us to focus on developing future cooperative leaders.
