MONTGOMERY, Ala. --- Students planning to pursue agriculture or forestry degrees at Auburn University have until Dec. 1 to apply for scholarships from Alfa and the Alabama Farmers Federation.

The scholarships, valued up to $1,750 per student per year, will be awarded to students who plan to enroll or are currently enrolled in Auburn's College of Agriculture or School of Forestry. Students majoring in agricultural engineering or ag education are also eligible.

Ag and forestry scholarships are renewable yearly to students who maintain a 2.5 grade point average and exhibit good moral character and citizenship.

"This scholarship program is an excellent resource not only for students, but for everyone involved in Alabama agriculture. It ensures that the highest caliber of young men and women will pursue agricultural careers," said Paul Pinyan, executive director of the Alabama Farmers Federation. "As the state's largest farm organization, we're proud to support this program. Our investment in Alabama's students will pay dividends for many years to come."

Students are urged to apply early for admission, as enrollment at Auburn University is limited. Three letters of reference including an evaluation of your background and character are required in addition to the application.

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 107 Comer Hall, Auburn University, AL 36849. Applications are also available for download below.
