The Alliance for the Future of Agriculture in Nebraska (AFAN) is honoring our 15th anniversary by celebrating the next generation of agriculture enthusiasts! As part of this celebration, we will be awarding $250 scholarships to 15 exceptional college students across the state of Nebraska. Students applying need to currently enrolled in college and planning to pursue a degree in the field of agriculture and have a cumulative GPA of at least 2.5.
AFAN was formed in 2005 by the leading agricultural organizations in Nebraska to conduct outreach, promotion and provide information to consumers about Nebraska agriculture and where their food comes from. In 2015, these organizations saw another need, advancing livestock development and agriculture and food processing businesses in Nebraska. Since then AFAN has been primarily focused on encouraging the development and expansion of livestock, as well as working with communities and Nebraska leaders to create opportunities for industries that add value to Nebraska’s agricultural output and energize the economy.
Completed applications can be mailed to the AFAN office at 5225 S. 16th St Lincoln, NE 68512 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Or you can apply online by clicking on the link below. Applications due January 31st, 2020.
