GCPA Scholarship Requirements and Guidelines


The Georgia Crop Production Alliance Scholarship for Students in the Agricultural Sciences
Academic Year of 2021– 2022

The Georgia Crop Production Alliance (GCPA) is now accepting applications for Crop Production Scholarships for the academic year of 2021-2022.  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).

The recipients will be notified by email or phone prior to the GCPA annual business meeting, and formally announced to the membership at the annual business meeting on October 27, 2021 at the University of Georgia Tifton Campus Conference Center.  Recipients will be invited to attend the annual meeting program the same day with waived registration fee and attend the luncheon to receive their award, if available.  Otherwise, a check will be mailed after the annual meeting.

Applications may be submitted either by:

1. downloading and completing the Scholarship Application form and emailing to Dr. Tubbs at tubbs@uga.edu, OR

2. clicking here to access the online application. Please be sure to add your name to any application files that are submitted for example, “Doe JQ – 2021 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.
