Its time for another Daily Scholarship and Financial Aid Tip in about two minutes, by JR The College Money Man

This is episode 41 and today we are talking about How to Find Scholarships for the Children of Farmers ;

Ask anyone who has grown up in a farming family and they will tell you with pride how hard the work can be managing a farm or dairy. The hours are long, work physical, and rewards shift with the seasons. But after living in Illinois for the past 14 years, I can honestly say many would tell you they wouldn’t have it any other way. 

But when it comes to sending kids who grew up on the farm to school, many families often don’t know where to begin looking for scholarships locally. However, the children of farmers often have great resources right down the road for scholarships and extra financial aid. Many don’t know it, but local and regional farm bureaus and co-ops often offer scholarships the children of members. In addition, local Farmers Bureaus and Credit organizations offer regional and national scholarships as well for both AG and Non-Agriculture majors. And of course there is the local, state, regional, and national FFA, formally known as the Future Farmers of America. The FFA offers scholarships every year to members at multiple levels.

So if you come from a farming family, contact local co-op’s, farm bureaus, and the FFA for scholarship opportunities. They may just offer the aid your child needs to finish their degree debt free.
