A number of opportunities are available for students to engage in the farm broadcasting community.

Student membership is available for students studying agriculture communications.

At convention, Farm Credit and Zoetis sponsor the Social Media Corps program for students. Participants are chosen through a competitive application process.

Each year, the NAFB Foundation offers several $5,000 college scholarships: the Glenn Kummerow Memorial Scholarship, the George Logan Scholarship, and the Orion Samuelson Scholarship (sponsored by the CME Group). These scholarships are recognized at the National NAFB Convention, 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 prior to the application deadline and must be enrolled in or transferring to an agricultural communications curriculum with concentration and/or application in broadcast media.

Students are also encouraged to contact their local farm broadcaster about internship opportunities that may be available. Each spring, the NAFB Foundation coordinates a summer internship grant program, sponsored by DuPont Pioneer, for up to 10 stations and networks.
