The Texas FFA Association awards more than $1.2 million in scholarships annually to deserving members in hopes of turning the dream of quality education into an obtainable reality.

Brooke Blum, a freshman animal science major and former Howe FFA member, believes the Texas FFA provided her with the opportunity to pursue her college aspirations.

“My scholarship has helped me pursue my dream of attending Texas Tech University,” said Blum. “Without the help from the Texas FFA, college might not have been the same, and for that I am forever grateful.” 

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 measure of financial burden.

The Texas FFA program strives to provide the means for outstanding members to reach their potential. In 2015 Kloe Burris, former Jourdanton FFA member, was recognized for her academic accomplishments as well as participation in various FFA programs and activities and was awarded a San Antonio Livestock Show and Exposition scholarship.

“Because of hard work, I have been able to finish my first semester without personally paying college tuition, said Burris.” 

The Texas Tech University freshman hopes to become an agriculture attorney after graduation. This career will hopefully allow her to give back to the organization and industry that help establish her educational foundation. 

“My Texas FFA scholarship has given me the opportunity to reach my goals and focus on my education," said Burris.

The 2015-2016 Texas FFA Scholarship application is now online and is accessible through the Roster Management System. For scholarship application due dates, check your district and area calendars.
