Since 1977, the NAFB Foundation has provided financial support and educational opportunities in the form of college Scholarships to assist students in pursuit of careers in agricultural communications. More than $315,000 in scholarships has been awarded.
The NAFB Foundation offers $5,000 college scholarships; the Glenn Kummerow Memorial Scholarship, the George Logan Scholarship, the Orion Samuelson Scholarship (presented by CME Group), and The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation. These scholarships are recognized at NAFB Convention in Kansas City each November and recipients also receive an expense-paid trip to attend the convention as part of the award.
Applicants must be a college Junior, Senior or Graduate student for the Fall 2017 semester and enrolled in or transferring to an agricultural communications curriculum. Strong consideration will be given to candidates with concentration and/or application in broadcast media (this may include internet/online media distribution). Applications are due by June 12, 2017.
