2021 Scholarships announced

 Investing in our youth is a commitment MFA takes seriously. The MFA Foundation Scholarship Program is a prime example of that commitment. Established in 1958, the Foundation is a nonprofit, philanthropic organization with the primary purpose of providing educational opportunities to high school seniors in MFA’s trade territory. Since 1965, the Foundation’s foremost mission has been providing MFA Foundation scholar-ships, which have provided financial assistance to nearly 15,000 students, totaling more than $16 million.



In an increasingly complex world, education and technical training become important tools for today’s young people to flourish. The MFA Foundation scholarships are intended to help students pursue studies and develop careers that enhance the future of rural America. Scholarships are of-fered annually in areas where a participating MFA Agri Services Center, MFA Oil Company propane plant, MFA Oil Company bulk plant or other MFA agency is located. Applications for next year’s MFA Foundation scholarships will be available at these facilities, and winners will be selected by local committees.

The majority of the scholarships are $2,000 and may be used at any college or university. This year, some 325 high school seniors received scholarships worth nearly $652,000 in total, co-spon-sored by the MFA Foundation and MFA locations.

Throughout its history, MFA has continually endeavored to make a difference in communities where the cooperative and its affiliates operate. One of the best ways to positively impact the future is to cultivate the next crop of agricultural leaders, and these scholarships are only one example of MFA’s support. We actively sponsor and participate in organizations such as 4-H and FFA along with other educational activities and programs, including Missouri Farmers Care’s Ag Education on the Move. At MFA, we realize that investing in our rural communities and youth education is truly an investment in the future of agriculture.
