Ag Partners and Alceco FFA Scholarship 

Ag Partners and Alceco offer the FFA award to one high school senior from each FFA chapter in the Ag Partners trade area. This award is based on points accumulated throughout each student’s FFA career. An FFA member can receive this award only once.

Any high school senior in each FFA chapter may apply for this award. In addition to the application, Ag Partners must be provided with an official class schedule that shows the recipient is a full-time student who has completed the first semester of college and is enrolled for the second semester.

FFA Award Criteria

An applicant for the Ag Partners/Alceco FFA Scholarship:
  • Must be a high school senior.
  • Must be an active member of their school’s FFA chapter.
  • Must plan to enroll in an accredited two- or four-year college, university, or vocational-technical school in the fall of the next academic year.

Selecting Recipients

The overall award winner will be determined by total points based on the career of the FFA participant. In case of a tie, determination of the overall award winner is based first on leadership within the FFA organization and then on community involvement.

Distributing the Awards

  • All scholarships are provided as cash awards in the form of a check issued following the first post-high school semester.
  • The checks are made payable to the student upon the successful completion of the first semester and proof of enrollment for the second semester.

FFA Students from These Schools Will Be Eligible

One non-renewable $500 scholarship may be awarded in each FFA chapter from the following schools. Two overall winners will receive a $1,000 scholarship. These awards are not based on financial need, but on the successful participation of the student’s FFA chapter.
