The NeCGA Future Leaders in Ag Scholarship Program (FLAGship Program) is open to Nebraska high school seniors or college freshman who are continuing their education in state. The Nebraska Corn Growers Association (NeCGA) will award up to five $2,000 scholarships to high school seniors or college freshman in the state of Nebraska.
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 must include one letter of recommendation, a current resume, as well as proof that the student is continuing their education. Students are asked to explain how they will be an advocate for agriculture in their future careers as well as what issues they feel the ag industry is currently facing. Applications typically open after the first of the year. If you have questions regarding the scholarship or the application process, please call the office or email Katherine Bynre, the Director of Grower Services, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The National Corn Growers Association also has a number of scholarship programs for college students. For more information about those programs, click here.
