ALFA SCHOLARSHIP DEADLINE APPROACHING
MONTGOMERY, Ala.-- Students planning to pursue degrees in agriculture or forestry at Auburn University are reminded that the deadline to apply for the Alabama Farmers Federation/Alfa Scholarships is Dec. 1.
The scholarships of up to $1,750 per student, per year are 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. The scholarships are renewable yearly to students who maintain a 2.5 grade point average and exhibit good moral character and citizenship.
Almost 500 students have received the scholarships since the program began April 30, 1983.
"The value of helping prepare so many young men and women for careers in agriculture is immeasurable," said the Federation's Mike Kilgore, who serves as executive director of the state's largest farm organization. "Many of these students have gone on to make a positive impact on agriculture in our state today."
Students seeking to enroll at Auburn University are urged to apply early for admission because enrollment is limited. Applications are available from the university and online at www.auburn.edu.
To apply for the Alfa Scholarship, students must complete a separate application. Scholarship applications are available for download below, 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.
