Capital Farm Credit Gives 100 Scholarships in 100 Days

To further strengthen its commitment to youth in agriculture, Capital Farm Credit is awarding 100 scholarships to Texas students in 2017.

In addition to various scholarships given through contests, colleges and universities, each of Capital Farm Credit's branch offices across the state is awarding at least one $1,000 scholarship.

"A big part of our mission is to help rural areas grow and thrive by providing farmers and ranchers with the capital they need to make their businesses successful," said Ben Novosad, chief executive officer. "We're also proud to help build the next generation of agricultural producers through our scholarship program. By supporting Texas' youth, we're helping invest in the vibrancy of rural communities throughout Texas."
