The Jim Russell Foundation provides scholarships to college agriculture students and donates to agriculture education organizations such as Agriculture Future of America (AFA), Agricultural Leaders of Tomorrow (ALOT), 4H, and others. Applications are sent out in August to all Missouri universities with ag programs and are available below. Appliications are due October 1 of each year and rewarded to the student during the spring semester of the following year.
* High school seniors, college freshman and sophomores should not apply. This is because the older students have so much more experience, making it hard for younger students to compete with years of activities.
For more information or to request a hard copy application, contact Jeff Leonard at the MO-AG office, (573) 636-6130 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
