GCPA Scholarship Requirements and Guidelines

The Georgia Crop Production Alliance (GCPA) is accepting applications for Crop Production Scholarships for the academic year of 2016-2017. GCPA will award each scholarship in the 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 University of Georgia). Students must be pursuing a degree, or program of interest, directly related to issues that affect crop production.

The number of scholarships awarded will be contingent upon annual fundraising activities by the GCPA, but a minimum of one will be awarded (four awards have been presented each of the last several years). 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 in November, 2016 at the Lake Blackshear Resort and Golf Club near Cordele, Georgia. GCPA will present a check in the amount of $1,000 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 – 2016 GCPA scholarship application.doc”. Unofficial 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, 2016
