GCPA Scholarship Requirements and Guidelines

The Georgia Crop Production Alliance Scholarship for Students in the Agricultural Sciences
Academic Year of 2017 – 2018

The Georgia Crop Production Alliance (GCPA) is now accepting applications for Crop Production Scholarships for the academic year of 2017-2018. GCPA will award each scholarship in the minimum amount of $1,000 per selected student. These scholarships will be awarded to undergraduate students enrolled in an agricultural related discipline at an institution of higher education in the state of Georgia (including but not limited to Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College, Fort Valley State University, and The University of Georgia). Students must be pursuing a degree, or program of interest, directly related to issues that affect crop production. There will be a minimum of two awards this year, but possibly more pending the recommendation of the Scholarship Committee’s review of applications and approval of the GCPA Board of Directors. Grades, extra-curricular activities, and desire of a career in crop production agriculture will be considered in the final selection (please include a 1-2 page statement of career interest). The recipients will be requested to attend the GCPA annual meeting awards luncheon that will be held on November 2, 2017 at the Lake Blackshear Resort near Cordele, GA. GCPA will present a check to each scholarship recipient at the annual meeting.

Please be sure to add your name to any application files that are submitted, for example –
“Tubbs RS – 2017 GCPA scholarship application.doc”. An unofficial copy of transcripts should also be included.

GCPA is a Georgia-based alliance of agrichemical and academic personnel dedicated to improving the efficient and profitable production of Georgia crops. Members of GCPA are particularly interested in encouraging and supporting students who desire a career in some aspect of crop production agriculture.

DEADLINE for applications: September 30, 2017
