Farm Kids for College Helps Students Pursue College Goals
Some of the most exciting careers available today are in agriculture, on farms and
throughout the industry. Farm enterprises, science careers, the vast dairy, grain
and livestock industries. Ag has just about everything.
At National Farmers, we are honored to encourage the next generation to chase their
ag dreams – and catch them. Part of how we at National Farmers do that, is through
the national Farm Kids for College Scholarship.
