Indiana Ag Scholarships & Grants

classroomIndiana Farm Bureau cares about the future of our farming communities and those who will be - and are already - involved in the agricultural industry. We sponsor or co-sponsor several scholarships for college-bound youth, current college students and individuals seeking to enhance their careers in agriculture. We also give grants to members and county Farm Bureaus seeking to extend their education outreach in their communities.
