  AGCO Dealer Scholarship/Grant

*Sent to all IL ag teachers.

The annual window for AGCO dealer scholarship/grant signups is now open.  The window is open through December 13, 2019.

Since 2012, AGCO has generously partnered with the National FFA Foundation to provide over $400,000 in grants and scholarships to local level FFA members and chapters.

Each year, FFA chapters are encouraged to reach out to their local AGCO dealer to see if they might be interested in funding a chapter grant or individual scholarship in their community.  AGCO dealers can choose to either fund one or more $1,000 scholarships and/or one or more $800 chapter grants for local FFA chapters.

The cost to the local AGCO dealer for either a grant or a scholarship is $500.  The corporate level of AGCO picks up the remaining balance so that the student receives a full $1,000 scholarship or your chapter receives an $800 grant.  The local AGCO dealer gets to take credit for the full scholarship or grant even though their contribution is only part of the full award. 

For each chapter grant awarded by a local AGCO dealer, a portion of the donation also goes to the state FFA foundation.

Chapter grants are awarded during National FFA week while scholarships are awarded in the late spring as part of the National FFA Organization student scholarship program.
