The National FFA Organization and Foundation has announced more than $2.7 million in scholarships awarded to 2,152 recipients – made possible thanks to the generosity of 127 sponsors.
More than 7,000 students applied for the scholarships, with many of the applicants being considered for multiple scholarships. They were able to apply for the scholarships online, and approximately one of every three who applied was awarded a scholarship. The scholarships available ranged for either two-year or four-year degrees or vocational programs. The average recipient had a GPA of 3.75 on a 4.0 scale and were in the top 15 percent of their class. Continue reading →

The application process is open from now until February 15. Get started today!
The program, now in its second year, connects FFA members with local veterinarians in order to help them learn more about the animal health industry. A portion of purchases from Pfizer Animal Health cattle and equine products will be donated to behalf of local veterinarians to the FFA chapters of their choice. The funds will help FFA chapters travel to educational and leadership seminars and plan chapter activities.
The total amount raised this year, beat last year’s record by more than $200,000! We are incredibly grateful to Pfizer Animal Health and all of the veterinarians who continue to support FFA. Through generous gifts such as these, we can ensure that all students are given the opportunities they need to grow and succeed.
