The National Association of Farm Broadcasters believes in the future of farm broadcasting, which is why they’ve been supporting college students with financial support since 1975.  This year the NAFB will be offering five $5,000 scholarships to college juniors, seniors or graduate students enrolled for the fall of 2016.

The scholarships include the Glenn Kummerow Memorial Scholarship, the George Logan Scholarship, the Orion Samuelson Scholarship (presented by CME Group), the BASF Grow Smart Scholarship (presented by BASF), and the CHS Scholarship (presented by CHS, Inc.).  Selected students will be honored at the NAFB Convention in Kansas City, Missouri November 9-11, 2016.  Conference attendance is included as part of the award.

Applications are due online by June 6, 2016.  Students enrolled in a college or university agriculture communications program and hoping to pursue a career in agriculture communications are eligible.  Please create a user account to allow you to revisit the site as you work on the application.
