For the ninth year in a row, we are proud to partner with the National FFA Foundation to offer seven $2,000 scholarships to one area 2021 high school graduate from each of the following counties: Borden, Crosby, Dickens, Hale, Lubbock, Lynn, and Scurry.
This year, our students have been put to the test in ways that they never have before. The coronavirus pandemic has tested their resilience, their willingness to work hard, and their commitment to adjusting to change, after change, after change. We are incredibly proud of our area students for withstanding these challenges, and we cannot wait to see what they accomplish next!
“We’re so proud to have been able to award these scholarships to West Texas students for nearly a decade. These kids have worked hard and deserve every ounce of recognition they get,” said Joe Hurst, Hurst Farm Supply CEO.
Selections for next year’s scholarships 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 agriculture work experience in agriculture education, and future goals.
The application window is open from November 1st, 2020, through January 14th, 2021.
Applicants must have (or create) an account at ffa.org to apply for the scholarship. Questions regarding the application process may be directed to FFA@applyISTS.com.
