The National FFA Organization has awarded more than $1.5 million in scholarships to 974 recipients, thanks to the generosity of 309 sponsors and donors. This year marks the 37th year for the scholarship program.
More than 4,656 students applied online for the scholarships, with many applicants being considered for multiple awards. The scholarships were available to students pursuing two-year or four-year degrees, or vocational certification or specialized training programs. The average recipient had a GPA of 3.77 on a 4.0 scale.
The selection process considers the whole student, including FFA involvement, work experience, supervised agricultural experience, community service, leadership skills, academics and financial need.
A list of recipients is available at FFA.org/Scholarships. Recipients are listed first by the states where their high schools are located and then alphabetically by student first name.
Information regarding the 2022 FFA Scholarships program will be available on the scholarship website beginning Nov. 1, 2021.
