CGFA Foundation Scholarship and Internship Assistance Program
Our future depends on tomorrow’s leaders.
The CGFA Foundation was organized to provide support for students pursuing careers in agriculture through 4-year college and university scholarships as well as internship support awards to assist with expenses for those students participating in an internship program in the industry. This is a new Foundation for CGFA which will begin in 2023 and we will continue to work on increasing the funding and support for students pursuing careers in agriculture. Scholarships will be awarded annually based upon academic achievement, career goals, extracurricular activities, determination, leadership skills, and a commitment to study agriculture.
Eligibility: Full-time students at any 4-year college or university offering agriculture curriculum who are in at least their second year, as well as graduate students, are eligible to apply for this scholarship. “Full-time student” is as defined by the college or university of the applicant. Children or other relatives of CGFA Foundation Board members or others serving on a selection committee for this scholarship are not eligible to apply. In the event you receive a scholarship under this program, funds will be sent directly to the financial aid office at the college/university for fall semester or quarter of 2023.
Criteria: Awards are based on several factors including but not limited to the following: interest and commitment to a grain and feed related career, scholastic achievement, and the overall content of the application (spelling and grammar will be elements taken into consideration).
Applications are due on March 24, 2023.
