1st Farm Credit Services is offering 24, $1,500 scholarships to graduating high school seniors to further their education in an agriculture or rural life-related field of study.

The First Choice Agriculture Scholarship is for graduating high school seniors who have been accepted into an agriculture or agriculture-related curriculum at a university, college or community college and either reside or attend high school within 1st Farm Credit Services' service territory.

Agriculture-related fields include those that would contribute to the quality of rural life for people living in rural areas, or for those who want to return to a rural area to work in any field.

Selection will be based on a combination of academic achievement, community and agricultural youth organization involvement and brief essays. Applicants will be judged by a panel of independent agribusiness, education, youth and farm organization leaders.
