The Nebraska Corn Growers Association is continuing to accept applications for the seventh class of the Future Leaders in Agriculture Scholarship (FLAGship) Program. The FLAGship Program is a scholarship program intended for future agricultural leaders in Nebraska. The Nebraska Corn Growers Association (NeCGA) will award up to give $2,000 scholarships to high school seniors or college freshman who are continuing their education in the state of Nebraska. Three of the scholarships are set aside strictly for those students pursuing a degree directly related to agriculture. Two of the scholarships are open to non-agricultural degree seeking students.

To be eligible for this scholarship, students must be a member of NeCGA or the son/daughter of an NeCGA member. The application for the FLAGship Program has been consolidated with the 2022 NCGA scholarship application which can be found here. Applicants are asked to explain how they will advocate for agriculture in their future career as well as what issues they feel the ag industry is currently facing.

Applications are due Monday, January 31st at 11:59 p.m. CT. If you have questions regarding the scholarship or the application process, please call the office or email Katherine Byrne, the Director of Grower Services, at kbyrne@necga.org.
