Wyoming FFA Members Earn National FFA Scholarships

The National FFA Organization and National FFA Foundation has awarded more than $2.7 million in scholarships to 1,888 recipients. This was made possible thanks to the generosity of 115 sponsors.

More than 8,300 students applied online for the scholarships.  Ten Wyoming FFA members earned eleven different scholarships totaling in more than $15,000 in funds to help them achieve their dreams of higher education.

Approximately one in every four students who applied was awarded a scholarship. The scholarships were available to students pursuing two-year or four-year degrees or vocational programs. The average recipient had a GPA of 3.76 on a 4.0 scale and was in the top 16 percent of their class.

This year marks the 33rd year for the scholarship program, which began in 1984 with 16 scholarships offered. Since then, more than $47 million has been awarded in scholarship funds through the National FFA Organization.

The selection process takes into account the whole student, including FFA involvement, work experience, supervised agricultural experience, community service, leadership skills and academics.
