Students studying agriculture have a chance to win a $2,500 scholarship and a donation to the charity of their choice through the 2022 Accelerating a Generation Syngenta Scholarship Program, according to a news release. Through the scholarship program, which is run by the National FFA organization, Syngenta will give a total of six scholarships to college students from across the country who are pursuing an education in agricultural or farm studies.
“Making sure students feel supported is the first and most important step in ensuring a strong future in our agricultural community, and this program does just that,” said Linda Arnold Whaley, head of marketing communications for Syngenta Seeds. “Our scholarship is the perfect tool for empowering students.”
The application period runs until Jan. 11. Applicants must be U.S. residents, and those in higher-education institutes must be enrolled as of fall 2021 in an accredited agriculture program at a land-grant university. FFA membership is not required. Along with the scholarship money, each winner can designate an agriculture-related, nonprofit organization to receive a $500 donation from Syngenta.
