SWGAFC Scholarships for Area High School Seniors
Nov 7, 2016

For the seventh consecutive year, Southwest Georgia Farm Credit will provide $4,000 in scholarship money to deserving high school seniors who live in the Association's 21-county territory. 

Four $1,000 scholarships will be awarded to those attending college to pursue a degree in agriculture sciences, animal biology, chemistry, business, accounting, finance, communications, etc.

"We have provided $36,000 in scholarships over the past six years in an effort to keep bright, talented, and leadership-oriented individuals in our rural communities," said Richard Monson, chief executive officer at Southwest Georgia Farm Credit. "For students who have demonstrated academic achievement, and who are interested in a career that is essential to sustaining infrastructure in our small towns and communities, our goal is to help remove financial barriers so that they will have an opportunity to go on to college."

The four scholarships will be awarded to students who show a record of scholastic achievement and who, through their extracurricular activities, exemplify community spirit. High school seniors pursuing either a two- or four-year degree may apply.

Application form must be accompanied by the following:

  • A high school transcript, showing GPA and class rank.
  • Two letters of recommendation from someone other than an immediate family member.
  • A two-page, single-spaced essay, “My hopes and dreams for rural America.”
  • Must indicate that student’s primary residence is within the Association’s 21-county territory.

Scholarship winners will be chosen based on overall achievement and accomplishments.
