The Georgia Crop Production Alliance Scholarship for Students in the Agricultural Sciences
Academic Year of 2020– 2021
The Georgia Crop Production Alliance (GCPA) is now accepting applications for Crop Production Scholarships for the academic year of 2020-2021. 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, and possibly more pending Scholarship Committee recommendation 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). Due to COVID-19, there will not be an in-person annual meeting and awards banquest this year, but award recipients will notified by email or phone prior to the annual business meeting, where recipients will be formally announced to the membership on October 28, 2020. GCPA will send a check to each scholarship recipient after the annual meeting.
