About this Scholarship

The Ancilla FFA Leadership Scholarship is open to high school graduates and transfer students who are active members of the Future Farmers of America.

The FFA Leadership Scholarship will be awarded to three students selected for $2,000, $1,000 or $500 annual awards (renewable each year).

Students, who are active members of the FFA, will produce a video on “Why Agriculture is Important” no more than 10 minutes long, explaining why they want to pursue a degree in Agriculture. The video should be produced by the student but can include high school FFA peers, teachers, and family members. Awardees will be selected for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place scholarships, by Ancilla College faculty and a select award committee, based on the presentation of ideas and goals, originality, and clarity.

All scholarships are paid to students with the understanding that the money will be used for Ancilla College tuition, fees, books, and equipment required for classes to attain a degree in Agriculture (Animal Science or Crop Science) from Ancilla College.
