National FFA Organization Continues to Support the Next Generation of Leaders

Thu, 06 May 2021 08:55:15 CDT

National FFA Organization Continues to Support the Next Generation of Leaders FFA awarded more than $1.5 million in scholarships to 974 recipients, thanks to the generosity of 309 sponsors and donors.
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.
This year marks the 37th year for the scholarship program, which began in 1984 with 16 scholarships offered. Since then, more than $50 million have been awarded in scholarship funds through the National FFA Organization.
The selection process considers the whole student, including FFA involvement, work experience, supervised agricultural experience, community service, leadership skills, academics and financial need.
“We know that our FFA members are the next generation of leaders who will change the world,” said Michele Sullivan, senior manager of local engagement for the organization. “These scholarships are just one more way to support them on the next steps in their educational journeys.”
A list of recipients is available on the FFA scholarship webpage 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.

The National FFA Organization is a school-based national youth leadership development organization of more than 760,000 student members as part of 8,700 local FFA chapters in all 50 states and Puerto Rico
