This year, the FCA Foundation will accept up to 100 applications. Interested candidates can apply online on or before June 15th, 2015. If the foundation receives 100 applications before that date, the application process will close down early.

“We should accept nothing less than a world in which everyone has access to a safe, healthy and sufficient food supply,” explained Jody Trapasso,  Senior Vice President of External Affairs at FCA North America. Trapasso also serves as President of the FCA Foundation. “Our hope is that these scholarships provide farmers with the inspiration and knowledge to help this vision become a reality.”

The National Black Farmers Association (NBFA) is a non-profit organization that seeks to provide education and advocacy efforts on behalf of African-American farmers and their families.
