Since 1996, AFA’s partnerships have awarded more than $9 million in academic scholarships, and provided leader training to 13,000 students and young professionals. In Washington County alone, 17 students have received $54,400 in scholarships during the 14-year community partnership with AFA.
Eligibility requirements for the Washington County Community Scholarship include any high school seniors enrolling in an accredited college of agriculture. They must also be a resident of Washington County.
The AFA will only accept online applications, but this process allows students to qualify for National AFA Scholarships in addition to our local AFA Scholarship.
This process provides an extra opportunity for scholarships from the National AFA organization if the candidate(s) aren’t selected as the local recipient.
The 2017 AFA Community Scholarship has a deadline of March 17, 2017.
More information and the application can be found at: www.agfuture.org/scholarships.
