For more than two decades, Farm Credit East has been committed to supporting the industry’s next generation by awarding higher education scholarships. To date, we've awarded nearly 500 scholarships to qualified students committed to careers in agriculture, commercial fishing or the forest products industry, amounting to $736,500.

The first few words of the FFA’s creed reads, “I believe in the future of agriculture.” In honor of National FFA Week, we just wanted to take moment to recognize all of the supporters – current, former and future FFA members – who are committed to achieving FFA's motto for the future of American Agriculture.
Remember back in high school when you were “interested” in someone and you had the feeling that they were also interested in you? Should you make the first move or should you wait for them to do so? Starting a conversation about farm transition planning is in many ways comparable.
Farm Credit East is committed to supporting the next generation of agriculture, commercial fishing and forest products industry leaders. As such, we launched a new scholarship program late last year for students involved in The National FFA Organization.
