We are very grateful to the following organizations who have set up scholarships for AgForestry participants.
Harold S Cox Leadership Legacy Scholarship
Harold often spoke on the importance of education: he valued education for his family and for those seeking leadership roles in agriculture. Harold’s fascination with diverse cultures, farming methods, and politics led him to visit more than 20 countries. These values and passions led Harold to serve as a member of AgForestry’s original Board of Directors (1978-1984), providing ongoing support for the organization.
This scholarship honors the legacy of Harold Sanders Cox, who donated $100,000 to the Agriculture and Forestry Education Foundation (AgForestry).
The Steven D. Stinson (AgForestry Class 27) Leadership in Natural Resources Scholarship Program is directed towards students from the Pacific Northwest that are studying in a natural resource field or natural resource leadership field of inquiry. Preference will be given to Washington Farm Forestry Association (WFFA) members and their families and to those studying in forestry-related disciplines. The award can be used to support students at 2-year, 4-year or graduate level post-secondary education levels or Ag-Forestry Leadership Program trainees.
Deadline information will be posted as soon as it is available.
This scholarship is open to wheat producers in Washington State. Once a wheat producer is accepted into the program, the Washington Wheat Foundation will award a gift up to $5000 per participant, depending on how many wheat producers are in the current classes.
