FLAGship Program


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 has been consolidated with the 2022 NCGA scholarship application. 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. 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.

The National Corn Growers Association also has a number of scholarship programs for college students. Use the consolidated application to apply for the NeCGA scholarship AND national scholarships! For more information about those programs, click here.
