America’s Farmers Grow Ag Leaders, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund, a philanthropic arm of Bayer, is again offering more than $500,000 in scholarships to high school seniors and college students in rural communities who are looking to continue their education in an ag-related field of study and become the next generation of ag leaders.

Students can apply for a $1,500 scholarship  through Feb. 6, 2019, and farmers will have the opportunity to endorse student applications through Feb. 13.

Students applying for a scholarship must be under the age of 23, be a high school senior or a full-time college student, have at least a 2.5 GPA, be pursuing or intending to pursue an ag-related degree in an eligible field of study, have two farmer endorsements, and meet any and all other program eligibility requirements as provided on the National FFA website.

For graduating students, there are nearly 60,000 job openings in agriculture—but many aren’t aware of the diverse opportunities.
