GCPA Scholarship Requirements and Guidelines
The Georgia Crop Production Alliance Scholarship for Students in the Agricultural Sciences
Academic Year of 2018 – 2019
The Georgia Crop Production Alliance (GCPA) is now accepting applications for Crop Production Scholarships for the academic year of 2018-2019. 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 three 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 requested to attend the GCPA annual meeting awards luncheon that will be held on November 8, 2018 at the Lake Blackshear Resort near Cordele, GA. GCPA will present a check to each scholarship recipient at the annual meeting.
Applications may be submitted either by completing the attached Scholarship Application form and emailing to Dr. Tubbs at the address below, or online at gcpaonline.com. Please be sure to add your name to any application files that are submitted, for example – “Doe JQ – 2018 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.
