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.
Currently, the NAFB Foundation offers five $5,000 college scholarships: the Glenn Kummerow Memorial Scholarship, the George Logan Scholarship, the Orion Samuelson Scholarship (presented by CME Group), the Grow SmartTM Scholarship (presented by BASF), and the CHS Scholarship (presented by CHS, Inc.). These scholarships are recognized at the NAFB Convention in Kansas City each November and the 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.
The online application for the 2017 Scholarship program will be available soon.
