This year marks the 32nd year for National FFA Organization and Foundation scholarship program, which began in 1984 with 16 scholarships offered. Since then, more than $44 million has been awarded in scholarship funds through the National FFA Organization.

Thanks to the generosity of 116 sponsors, in 2016 more than $2.6 million in scholarships have been awarded to 1,791 recipients. More than 8,300 students applied online, with many of the applicants being considered for multiple awards. 

The selection process takes into account the whole student, including FFA involvement, work experience, supervised agricultural experience, community service, leadership skills and academics.

Approximately one in every five students who applied was awarded a scholarship. The scholarships were available to students pursuing two-year or four-year degrees or vocational programs. The average recipient had a GPA of 3.75 on a 4.0 scale and were in the top 16 percent of their class.
