Agricultural students in post-secondary education are eligible to compete for a slice of up to $15,000 in scholarship awards through the Accelerating a Generation Syngenta Scholarship Program.
The scholarships are being offered in partnership with the National FFA Organization and can be accesses through the FFA Scholarship Portal. A student from each of the six regions of the country, which include all U.S. states and territories and the District of Columbia, will be awarded $2,500.
University students and incoming freshmen pursuing bachelor’s or associate degrees in crop-related agricultural disciplines are eligible to compete for the Syngenta scholarships. Applicants must be U.S. residents enrolled as of fall 2021 in an accredited agriculture program at a land-grant university. FFA membership is not required.
“Agriculture thrives by continually engaging passionate people and training them to lead our industry. We look forward to hearing about what drives the passion of our applicants and how they plan to inspire others to establish roots in the ag industry,” said Vern Hawkins, Syngenta regional director, North American Crop Protection.
Scholarship recipients will be announced in spring 2021. Each winner will have the opportunity to designate an agriculture-related non-profit organization to receive a $500 donation from Syngenta.
The deadline to apply is January 14. FFA-member entrants will have one additional week beyond the application deadline to turn in supplemental FFA materials. For more information about the scholarship, visit the FFA Scholarship Portal.
