2023 Alabama Farm Credit Scholarship Recipients
Alabama Farm Credit is pleased to announce the Alabama Farm Credit Scholarship Program, providing scholarships to high school seniors entering college and two-year college graduates pursuing further education at a four-year university. Our program offers two distinct scholarships, each tailored to benefit specific groups of students. The Young Roots Scholarship is for high school seniors passionate about pursuing a degree in agriculture, accounting, forestry, finance, or business. Meanwhile, the Cultivating Leaders Scholarship supports students from our local community who are graduating from resident community colleges and are keen on pursuing a four-year degree in any of the abovementioned fields.
On April 28th, Alabama Farm Credit hosted a scholarship brunch for the winners and their families. This event was an excellent time for the association and recipients to network and receive a professional development presentation from HR Manager Debbie Dabbs. We are proud to be able to pour into the next generation in this way and are eager to see how they flourish at their chosen colleges.
