ALFA SCHOLARSHIP DEADLINE IS DEC. 1
AUBURN, Ala. -- The deadline for Alabama Farmers Federation/Alfa scholarships to Auburn University has been moved up this year to Dec. 1.
Students planning to pursue degrees in agriculture or forestry at Auburn University are encouraged to apply. The scholarships of up to $1,750 per student, per year will be awarded to students who plan to enroll or who are currently enrolled in Auburn University's College of Agriculture or School of Forestry or who are majoring in agricultural engineering or ag education.
"As the state's largest farm organization, the Farmers Federation is proud to support bright young men and women who will be agriculture's future leaders," said Federation Executive Director Mike Kilgore.
Enrollment at Auburn University is limited, so students also should apply early for admission into the university. Admissions applications are available from the university. An online application is available by clicking on "admissions" at www.auburn.edu.
Students must complete a separate application for scholarships.
This is the 22nd 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 scholarship 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.
