The Texas FFA Association awards more than $1.2 million in scholarships annually to deserving members in order to turn the dream of a quality education into solid reality. 

Texas FFA scholarships are given for a wide variety of experiences, career goals and higher education plans. Financial support from scholarships enables students to explore the many opportunities presented after high school and removes a quota of financial burden. 

Kallie Fuchs, a junior nutritional science major at Texas A&M University, believes the Texas FFA presented her with the opportunity to pursue her college aspirations. In 2012 she was recognized for her academic accomplishments as well as participation in FFA programs and activities and was awarded a San Antonio Livestock Show and Exposition scholarship. 

“I would not have had the resources to take part in a great college experience without the scholarship received through Texas FFA,” said Fuchs. “I was able to fund my college education through various scholarships, including my Texas FFA scholarship, which gave me the freedom to pursue opportunities that would have been financially unattainable otherwise.”

The Texas FFA strives to provide the means for outstanding members to reach their potential.

“Being an FFA member prepared me for college more than any other experience I had in high school. It helped me make connections that I have utilized at Texas A&M” said Fuchs. “My involvement prepared me for the overall commitment required of a college student and member of society.”

After graduation, Fuchs plans to earn a doctorate of medicine from Baylor College of Medicine, and pursue a career in women’s health. 

The Texas FFA scholarship application is now available, and Fuchs encourages students to apply. 

“My advice would be to apply for every scholarship possible,” said Fuchs. “While some scholarships may be smaller than others, every cent counts when paying for a college education.”
