ALFA FUNDS AUBURN UNIVERSITY SCHOLARSHIPS
Montgomery Students planning to pursue degrees in agriculture or forestry at Auburn University have until Jan. 1 to apply for scholarships from the Alabama Farmers Federation and Alfa Insurance.
The scholarships will be awarded to students who plan to enroll or who are currently enrolled in Auburn's College of Agriculture or School of Forestry. Students majoring in agricultural engineering or ag education also are eligible. Each scholarship winner will receive up to $1,750 a year.
"As the state's largest farm organization, the Farmers Federation is proud to support bright young men and women who will lead agriculture into the next century," said Federation Executive Director Doug Rigney.
This is the 19th year the Federation has sponsored the scholarship program, which is designed to recruit high-caliber students into agriculture and related fields. In order for the annual scholarships to be renewed, the student should maintain a 2.5 grade point average and exhibit good moral character and citizenship.
Scholarship applications are available in all county Farmers Federation offices, local Alfa service centers or by writing to the dean of the College of Agriculture at Auburn University, 107 Comer Hall, Auburn University, AL 36849.
