Wilmington College Collegiate Farm Bureau

Each school year, American Farm Bureau offers mini-grants of $500 to Collegiate Farm Bureaus to aid in chapter recruitment, leadership development, community service outreach, officer development, purchase of educational materials, and registration costs for conferences. Grant funds must be used within the same school year in which they are awarded.

Application deadline is Oct. 6 at noon. Selected chapters will be announced on or before Nov. 1, 2022. 

For the 2022-2023 grant cycle, up to 10 chapters will be selected. Successful chapters will receive an initial $250 upon selection as a winner. The chapter must complete a Recap Report and submit it with accompanying photos by April 25, 2023, to receive the second $250.

Contact Kelsey Turner at Ohio Farm Bureau for more information about the grants and Ohio’s Collegiate Farm Bureau chapters: [email protected] or 614-246-8218.

 

I'm eternally grateful for the support Ohio Farm Bureau scholarships provided in helping me turn my dreams into reality.

I see the value and need to be engaged in the community I live in, to be a part of the decision-making process and to volunteer with organizations that help make our community better.

Leadership development
With not growing up on a farm, I’d say I was a late bloomer to agriculture. I feel so fortunate that I found the agriculture industry. There are so many opportunities for growth.

Growing our Generation
Labor has always been an issue, mainly because we are a seasonal operation. So that's a challenge finding somebody who only wants to work three months out of a year, sometimes up to six months.

Farm Bureau involvement has taught me how to grow my professional and leadership experience outside of the workforce and how to do that in a community-centric way.

If it wasn't for Farm Bureau, I personally, along with many others, would not have had the opportunity to meet with our representatives face to face in Washington.

So many of the issues that OFBF and its members are advocating for are important to all Ohioans. I look at OFBF as an agricultural watchdog advocating for farmers and rural communities across Ohio.
