Farm Credit Mid-America scholarship deadline nears

| February 22, 2016

UTICA – A Monday, Feb. 29 deadline is approaching for applications for the Farm Credit Mid-America Scholarship. Each year, the agriculture lender awards more than 60 scholarships valued at close to $100,000 to college students enrolled in agriculture programs.

“This is one of the many ways Farm Credit invests in the future leaders in agriculture,” said Vince Stainbrook, financial services officer with the Farm Credit Mid-America office in Utica. “As agriculture continues to grow and evolve, it’s important we invest in young leaders who aim to be at the forefront of the industry and grow with it.”

The scholarship program is part of the Farm Credit’s Secure the Future of Rural America Fund which contributes to programs and initiatives that support the next generation of agriculture and create stronger, more viable rural communities.

The scholarships are available to customers and their dependents and are based on academic record, leadership qualities and community involvement.  To apply, go to and select community, then scholarships.
