University of Tennessee Farm Credit Scholars



Investing in the brightest and most motivated agricultural minds at the University of Tennessee

Farm Credit Mid-America established the Farm Credit Scholars Program to prepare outstanding agriculture students at the University of Tennessee to be leaders in the industry once they graduate. The enhanced and specialized learning experience includes customized course work, mentorships, summer internships and other classroom and travel activities related to agribusiness and production agriculture, and scholarship funds. Five students at the University of Tennessee–Knoxville are selected to participate each year.

Since 2012, 27 bright and motivated youth have participated in the Farm Credit Scholars program, and many are already contributing to the future of agriculture in their careers; some have even joined the Farm Credit team.
