This year, Hurst Farm Supply is proud to once again partner with John Deere and the National FFA Foundation to offer seven - $2,000 scholarships to one area student from each of the following counties: Borden, Crosby, Dickens, Hale, Lubbock, Lynn, and Scurry. Selections for this scholarship will be awarded by the National FFA Foundation based on the applicant's leadership abilities, academic accomplishments, FFA and other school and community activity participation, supervised agricultural work experience in agricultural education, and future goals.
This year marks Hurst’s eighth year partnering with John Deere in the FFA Scholarship program since John Deere’s initial partnership in 2013. In 2019, more than 1,400 scholarships were available to over 6,200 applicants. The National FFA Organization awarded individual scholarships worth over $2 million during the last scholarship period and are over $50 million for the past 36 years.
“It is such an honor to be able to partner with John Deere in awarding these scholarships to local, well-deserving students. Witnessing the growth and fruits of these students’ labor is very rewarding”, said Joe Hurst.
The application window is open from November 1, 2019 through January 15, 2019. Please visit the National FFA Scholarship Program website for the online application form and program details.
