Graduating Seniors of Martin County high schools who plan to pursue a bachelor’s degree in agriculture or an area of study that services agriculture, may apply for up to $8,400 in scholarships.
In partnership with the Agriculture Future of America (AFA), the Agri-Business Committee of the Fairmont Area Chamber of Commerce is offering two $4,200 scholarships, which include registration for the Fall 2023 AFA Leaders Conference.
To be considered for a scholarship, please visit www.agfuture.org/scholarships. Here, you can read more about the AFA Community Scholarships, as well as other scholarships AFA offers. Click on the “Apply Now” button to access the application. You will be asked to write a 300-500 word essay on your personal vision for agriculture and how you plan to contribute
through your chosen career in the agriculture and food industry. We encourage you to draft this essay in a separate word processing program and then copy/paste it into the application. Please note that your application is not complete until you continue through the last page of the application and receive an e-mail confirmation.
Applying for an AFA Community Scholarship online also makes you eligible for an AFA National Leader and Academic Scholarship; however, you may only receive either a local or a national award.
The Martin County application deadline is March 9, 2023.
If you have any questions about the scholarship, please contact:
